Foreign Language Academies of Glendale (FLAG)
The GUSD Foreign Language Academies of Glendale (FLAG) program offers dual immersion language programs in seven target languages: Armenian, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish.
GUSD's goal is for all FLAG students to:
- Develop high levels of language proficiency and literacy in both English and the target language
- Demonstrate high levels of academic achievement
- Develop an appreciation for and an understanding of diverse cultures
GUSD offers both 90/10 and 50/50 Dual Immersion programs begining 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.
