Dual Immersion Program
A Lifetime Advantage: Learning How to Learn
The Spanish Dual-Language Immersion Program as a “school choice” option at Frank D. Parent allows children to learn in research-driven, innovative and effective ways by immersing them in two languages and cultures. Young children are developmentally hard-wired for language acquisition in meaningful contexts. Immersion in Spanish and English from TK through 8th grade gives children the opportunity to learn a second language the same way we learn our native language—by living it. Scientific research on childhood development has demonstrated that early dual-language acquisition leads to facility
in learning throughout life.
