• The Dual Language Classroom

    Students are grouped in Bilingual Pairs in order to learn from each other’s language strengths. The pairs work together at designated times to better understand content lessons, learning stations, and/or research centers. These partnerships foster accountability, collaboration, and empathy in our students.

    Our research-based, standards-aligned instruction allows students to learn at high levels while building global awareness and developing a global perspective. Hands-on, interactive Dual Language lessons and activities keep students engaged and take them deeper into grade-level skills and concepts.

    Students in our program apply their language learning in a child-centered environment that fosters global leadership skills through technology, creativity, and critical thinking. It is through this experience that students are truly able to demonstrate mastery of learning.
