Dual Language Clark

Video: New Dual Language Immersion Program

Posted by Devin Felix on 19 December, 2019

Supported by a voter-approved levy, the Issaquah School District has launched a new Dual Language Immersion program. Students in the program learn the same curriculum as other students in the district, but half the time they learn in English, and half the time they learn in Spanish. Kids who speak Spanish at home and kids who speak English at home learn together in the same class, so that all students can help promote each other’s language skills and form valuable relationships with people of different cultures.

Learning another language at a young age is beneficial in so many ways: It promotes academic growth and mental development, it opens up opportunities later in life, and it helps students to understand and connect with different cultures.

Thank you to voters for making this Dual Language program possible and helping our students become bilingual, biliterate, and bicultural!
