This program is open to all kindergartners who are entering school in September.

Join school officials as they discuss research highlighting the benefits of dual-language instruction and look at how they believe the dual-language program will help produce bilingual, biliterate and bicultural students. 

Some of the benefits of dual-language programs include: 

  • Oral and written proficiency in two languages (students learn two languages effortlessly and authentically).
  • High academic achievement.
  • Cross-cultural understanding and respect (biculturalism).
  •  Cognitive enrichment, including enhanced executive control functions.
