Dual Immersion Program
The Dual Immersion Program at Arovista Elementary provides the opportunity for students to develop simultaneous proficiency in English and Spanish. Research indicates that there are many benefits to students in dual immersion programs, such as bilingualism, bi-literacy, increased cognitive competencies and greater academic achievement. Students in Arovista's Dual Immersion program will develop skills to help them become globally competent with a greater understanding of multiculturalism.
Our program started in the 2019 - 2020 school year with our inaugural kindergarten class. A first grade class was added during the 2020 - 2021 school year and a second grade class will be added in the fall of 2021. Students learn academic content such as language arts, math, science and social science through the target both Spanish and English.
