Dual Language Immersion Program
Dual Language Immersion (DLI) Spanish Kindergarten
Students are selected for the DLI program by completing an application during the Kindergarten registration process. Application forms are included in every Kindergarten registration packet. If the number of applications exceeds the number of seats available(50), a lottery is held to select the students. New students are not enrolled in this program after the Kindergarten entry year. Applications are due in May, for the upcoming school year. A lottery, if needed, will be held the week with parent notification of admission to the program in June.
Program Mission: To prepare a multilingual/multicultural citizenry who can serve and compete locally and globally.
Program Goals: To develop bi-literate/bi-lingual proficiency, high academic achievement, and positive cross cultural competencies and attitudes in students.
Program Model: The cohort will participate in a 50/50 One-Way Spanish Model.
