Instructional Model

  • At kindergarten and first grade, approximately 90% of instruction will be in Spanish and 10% will be in English to facilitate early Spanish Language acquisition and literacy development. As students transition to higher grades, more of the instruction shifts to English, so that in the upper grades there will be an equal division (50/50) of Spanish and English instruction.
