Dual Language Program

MS 50 Spanish Dual Language Program

Overview

Dual Language immersion is a unique educational program that builds student bilingualism and bi-literacy in English and in Spanish. Instruction is provided by highly trained and caring teachers. Students continue to learn standards-based content while they become fluent in two languages; linguistically and academically. 

Goals of the Program Include:

  • Bilingualism – the development of high levels of proficiency in the student’s first and second language
  • Bi-literacy – the performance at or above grade level in academic areas in both languages
  • Multiculturalism – to understand different cultures and the development of high self-esteem

Benefits from Dual Language Immersion:

  • Children learn a second language more naturally at a young age
  • Bi-literate skills give students the options for careers requiring multilingual skills
  • The study of a second language helps develop strong thinking and reasoning skills useful for problem-solving
