Dual language immersion is a 50/50 instructional model in which students spend half their day learning in English and the other half learning in Spanish or Chinese. Through developmentally appropriate curriculum, students naturally pick up the language as they learn other subjects. The program is based on the total language learning approach incorporating content-based instruction and explicit language instruction. Our goal is that our immersion students will become bi-literate and bilingual.

Within Weber School District there are four language immersion programs. A separate application is required for each program. If you would like more information about a specific program, you are welcome and encouraged to attend an informational meeting hosted by the school principal and a school district representative. Only students entering 1st grade during the 2018-2019 school year are eligible to apply. All applications are due March 29rd, 2018 by 11:59 pm.

Applications for the 2020-2021 school year are due March 27, 2020 by 11:59 PM.
Please contact the school principal for additional information.

--Applications may only be submitted on behalf of incoming first graders.--
