About International Pathways

*must meet academic requirements
Two-way immersion provides two language groups (English and Spanish) with an opportunity to become bilingual and biliterate. Research shows that it takes 7-10 years in order to acquire proficiency in an additional language. The student’s first language is used to support the acquisition of their second; students learn to read, write and speak both languages. By using both languages equally, students stand strong, appreciating and bridging cultures while achieving academic success. Becoming proficient in both languages is recognized as a significant intellectual and cultural achievement which prepares students to be powerful contributors in our global society.

Purpose
The purpose of the proposed Two-way Immersion ELP Program is:

  1. to better equip ELP students to fully participate in a global society as bilingual, biliterate and bicultural members
  2. to better serve high achieving Spanish speaking students
  3. to increase the number of Latino students represented in the magnet Extended Learning Program
  4. to better serve an increasing ELP student population
