Dual Language Program

Dual Language Program

In preparing our students to meet the demands of the 21st century, Avery’s Creek Elementary School began offering an English/Spanish Dual Language Program for the 2016-2017 school year. Currently we have a kindergarten classroom and a first grade classroom following the  90/10 model; a 2nd grade classroom following the 80/20 model; a 3rd grade classroom following the 70/30 model and a 4th grade classroom following the 50/50 model. Applications for admission are available during Kindergarten Registration and selection occurs through a lottery process.  


What Is Dual Language?

Dual language is a form of bilingual education in which students are taught literacy and content in two languages. Dual programs use the partner language for at least half the day, generally starting in kindergarten or first grade.
