The Dual Language Immersion program follows the 50/50 model: students spend half of their day learning in English and the other half learning in Spanish. Studying in a Dual Language Immersion school such as Mill Creek is the first step on a path from first grade to University level courses. The benefits of Dual Immersion for students include bilingualism (students develop fluency in both English and Spanish), better cognitive skills, perform as well or better than non-immersion students on standardized tests, and increased cultural sensitivity. In all, Dual Language Immersion students leave Mill Creek better prepared to live in a global community.
