Dual immersion is a way to learn academic content while acquiring another language, Spanish, at the same time. Students receive math, science, or social studies instruction in Spanish. Because of the teaching strategies used, the students learn the concepts and skills for the subject area and develop the ability to read, write, speak, and listen in Spanish.
The goals are for the students to develop literacy skills in both English and Spanish while attaining academic achievement that is at or above their grade level as measured by Utah core testing.
Furthermore, students will develop a world cultural sensitivity. We strive to prepare Granite School District students academically, linguistically and socially for the challenges and needs of our global community.
Students start in 1st Grade and continue throughout their elementary education. We offer Dual Language Immersion in First through Sixth Grades.
