Scott Dual Language Elementary School offers students in Pre – K thru 3rd grade an opportunity to get a quality education in both English and Spanish.
The dual language program integrates native English speaking students with native Spanish speaking students for academic instruction, which is presented in both languages. Classrooms are composed of approximately 50 percent native English speakers and 50 percent native Spanish speakers. The 50/50 ratio enables all students to be language models and second language learners. It also creates an additive bilingual environment for both groups of students, allowing them to maintain and develop their first language while simultaneously acquiring a second language.
Teachers participating in the program speak only in the designated language and communicate using a range of engaging strategies to promote student understanding and language development. All students are taught to read, write, listen, and speak two languages. Social and academic learning occurs in an environment that values the language and culture of all students and sets high standards to ultimately achieve academic success in both languages.
