Dual Language Immersion Spanish Program

At Barnum Elementary we believe that being bilingual is a Super Power! We are excited to offer the opportunity for more of our neighborhood students to have access to bilingual education starting with ECE and Kinder during the 2021-2022 school year. ECE-1st grade during 2022-2023 school year and ECE-2nd grade for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year.

Dual Language Immersion Spanish Goals:
Students in the Dual program will achieve high levels of bilingualism and biliteracy.  We strive for high levels of academic excellence and achievement for all students. Classmates develop appreciation and positive cross cultural attitudes toward peers.

Why Dual Language Spanish Immersion?
Biliterate students are proven to have greater mental flexibility, improved cognition, and greater empathic abilities. Native Spanish speakers and native English speakers learn together in two languages. Students have increased opportunities for deeper learning about the cultures and languages of our community.
