DUAL LANGUAGE AND HERITAGE PROGRAMS

A Dual Language and Heritage program is a form of bilingual education in which students are taught literacy and core content in two languages: Spanish and English. Dual language programs foster bilingualism, bi-literacy, enhanced awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity, and high levels of academic achievement through instruction in two languages. This program prepares your student to participate in Spanish coursework in middle school and graduate with the prestigious Bilingual Seal.

The dual language and heritage programs provide children with the opportunity to learn Spanish through Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, and Science.  There are two tracts for bilingual education at Carlos Rey. The first is a 50-50 model where they are instructed in English and Spanish every day. The Heritage Program is  60 minutes a day, students are instructed in Spanish for 60 min every day, the rest of their instruction is given in English.   IF WOULD LIKE YOUR CHILD TO PARTICIPATE IN THE BILINGUAL/HERITAGE PROGRAM, PLEASE SPEAK WITH A MEMBER OF THE BILINGUAL TEAM.
