Students in the elementary German dual language immersion program spend 90% of their day learning in German and 10% learning in English starting in kindergarten. The percentage of English increases annually until 50% of the day is taught in German and 50% in English by 5th grade. Students learn to speak, read, and write in German through content, not as a separate course of study.
The elementary German program is offered at Franklin Elementary School.
