Dual Immersion

A_Fantastic_Opportunity Card IconA Fantastic OpportunityTop of Page

Dual Immersion offers a fantastic opportunity to students in West Sacramento. The program provides students with a complete academic program grounded in an educational environment that supports community action and celebrates cultural diversity. Students become orally fluent and academically proficient in Spanish and English. They acquire key language skills naturally and early in life, which enriches their cognitive ability in all subjects. Literacy in two languages broadens their academic, occupational, and economic opportunities.

The program began in 2015-16 with two classes in Kinder and has grown each year. The program will be offered through 8th grade. By the time these students reach middle school grades, they will be offered Sciences and/or Social Sciences in Spanish.
