The Glendale Unified Dual Language Immersion program offers seven languages:
Glendale Unified offers both 90:10 and 50:50 dual immersion programs beginning in kindergarten. In both program models, the target language is taught through content, not as a separate course of study.
Dual immersion classes are taught by fully credentialed, bilingual teachers who have additional preparation and expertise teaching in both English and their target language.
Benefits of Dual Immersion:
- Bilingualism and biliteracy
- Academic achievement
- Cultural competency
Glendale Unified's Dual Language Immersion programs require an application. Students are selected each year by a random lottery. The application window for the 2022-23 school year will be November 1, 2021, through January 31, 2022. Certain grades require language proficiency testing.
