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