Bilingual Program Basics

Fundamentally, all elementary classrooms, regardless of their staffing, implement the same instructional model:

  • 50% of instruction will be delivered in a Spanish immersion classroom.
  • 50% of instruction will be delivered in an English immersion classroom.

For Elementary School grades:

  • Math and Language arts will be delivered in Spanish.
  • English language arts, science and social studies will be delivered in English.

For Middle School grades:

  • Students will receive Spanish humanities and English humanities every year and will have math and science in either English or Spanish, depending on the grade level.
  • Classroom aides will be assigned to certain classrooms, based on student need. This can and will vary yearly.
