What is the Two-Way Dual Language Enrichment Program?
It is a program in which native English speaking children and native Spanish speaking children work together to become bilingual, biliterate, and bicultural. The goal of this program is to promote bilingual proficiency, high academic achievement, and cross-cultural awareness in all students. Ideally, there is a 50/50 balance between English and Spanish speakers in the Two-Way program. Instruction is provided in English and Spanish every day. Native English speakers and Spanish speakers will become proficient in a second language while still developing their first language. Students serve as native speaker models for their peers. Everyone is invested in each others’ success.
