Remote Learning

One-way immersion programs are designed primarily for English-speaking students to acquire a second language. These programs vary in intensity and structure depending on the specific model being implemented.

Teacher and Student

Two-way dual language education combines elements of both English-only instruction and bilingual maintenance approaches, catering to both native English speakers and English learners. In this model, students collaborate and assist each other in acquiring their second language. The goal is to foster proficiency in two languages—students' native language and another language—enhancing both linguistic and academic competencies.

Taking Notes in Class

A one-way developmental program is tailored for Spanish-speaking English Learners (ELs), including both IFEP (Initial Fluent English Proficient) and RFEP (Reclassified Fluent English Proficient) students who may also participate. The program aims to cultivate advanced levels of academic proficiency in the student's primary language while concurrently fostering the development of language and academic proficiencies in a second language, typically English.
