What is the Two-Way Dual Language Program?

Hunter’s Creek Elementary Two-Way Dual Language Program takes advantage of the culturally and linguistically diverse population in our community. Instead of separating students according to their primary language, they are placed together to learn from one another about their language and culture. Many different studies show that the best way to learn a second language is to use the new language in real-life, everyday situations. Our goal is to produce bilingual, bi-literate students who will have an academic, social, and economic advantage in our multicultural world.

Program Goals:

  • To create a classroom environment that promotes linguistic and cultural equality and fosters positive attitudes toward others
  • To develop interpersonal, academic content, and linguistic competence in English and Spanish
  • To develop and use higher level cognitive skills in Spanish and English
  • To become a bilingual, bi-literate, and bicultural global citizen
