Welcome to Dual Language Immersion

  • The possibilities are endless as students in Alvord Unified School District progress towards their unlimited potential. It is with great pride that the Alvord Unified School District provides this educational opportunity to its students and community.

    Dual language Immersion offers English and Spanish speaking students an exciting, enriching, and challenging educational opportunity. Students in DLI will learn to read, write, and communicate effectively in both languages while demonstrating high levels of academic achievement. DLI education aims to ensure students become bilingual, bi-literate, and bicultural starting in the early years of school where children are best primed for language learning and readily open to cultural experiences.

    Once enrolled, students will have the opportunity to continue dual language education through elementary and into middle and high school. The goal of this comprehensive K-12 DLI program is for students to enter into college and career fully literate in two languages.

    Participation in dual language education is optional and space is limited. If you are interested in dual language education and have a child entering kindergarten in the 2016-17 school-year, you are invited to attend one of the informational meetings listed on the Application Process form. If you have additional questions, please contact the EL office at (951) 509-5094.
