Edward Kemble Dual Language Immersion
The Dual Language Immersion Program is based on a two-way immersion educational model. This model stresses the following:
- High academic proficiency in two languages
- High academic achievement
- Mastery of the state’s content standards
- Life skills
- Community service
In the area of language arts, the goal is for students to speak, read, and write fluently in both English and Spanish as measured by the state standardized assessments and teacher-developed assessments.
Students in the program have the same access to the academic core curriculum as those children educated in an English only setting. The benefit is that, in addition, the students receive second language instruction.
