For the 2018-2019 school year we are pleased to offer Dual Immersion to all rising kindergarten students who live in the WM Irvin Elementary School district. In the 2018-2019 school year we will have 2 Kindergarten classes in the Dual Immersion program which will accommodate up to 48 students and 2 first grade classes filled with students who participated in the program during the last school year.
Students participating in the program will be taught the same Common Core standards as students in traditional kindergarten classes. Those who are in the Dual Immersion program will receive that instruction in both Spanish and English, allowing them to learn a second language while simultaneously learning the kindergarten curriculum. The higher order thinking processes involved in learning through two languages enhances students' proficiency at learning new skills and provides life-long benefits.
