Welcome to Kindergarten Flag

  • Welcome to the FLAG 50/50 Dual Immersion Program.
    Our goal is to develop bilingualism and biliteracy with academic language in two languages. Armenian language is taught both for language acquisition and content instruction. 50% of the instructional day is taught in Armenian and 50% in English. Careful consideration is given to the selection and planning of the content areas and themes that are taught in Armenian. Dual Immersion classes are taught by fully credentialed bilingual teachers who have additional preparation and expertise in teaching Armenian. Eastern Armenian (Federal orthography) is the primary dialect of instruction, however, students are exposed to the Mesropian orthography and the Western dialect as encountered in literature and other supplemental materials.
