what are the Benefits of Dual language immersion?
Bilingual brains are more efficient and nimble.
Bilingual brains demonstrate a greater capacity for spatial reasoning (ability to visualize spatial patterns and how to manipulate them) and motor control.
Bilingualism postpones the onset of cognitive decline in older age.
Students perform at or above the levels of monolingual peers on all standardized tests given in English.
Bilinguals are patient and efficient problem-solvers.
Students perform well on standardized assessments such as Advanced Placement (AP) exams, as well as internationally recognized career-language credentials.
5th graders may be expected to perform at the level of many traditional high school language students.
By 9th grade, these students will have the linguistic skills to pass the AP language test (targeted language).
By graduation, students will approach the advanced level in speaking, listening, reading, and writing of the target language.
Students will possess a skill that creates a professional competitive advantage in their chosen field, making them more attractive to colleges, career and technical programs, and employers.
The school community may leverage this innovative new program to draw businesses (and parents) relocating to the area.
Our region, already a hub for international business, will benefit by continuing to link our excellent programs of study with their increasing need for a globally competent workforce.
