Dual Language Immersion Program

The Dual Language Immersion program at Arovista Elementary provides the opportunity for students to develop proficiency in Spanish & English academics. Longitudinal research has demonstrated that both English speakers and Spanish speakers develop bilingualism, biliteracy, increased cognitive and academic achievement in both languages over the course of the seven year elementary program. Through the immersion process, students learn academic content such as language arts, mathematics, social science, science and metalinguistic skills. Students in Arovista's Dual Language Immersion program will develop multilingual and sociocultural competencies in order to successfully compete in our global economy.
 
Our program began during the 2019-2020 school year with our inaugural kindergarten class.
