Dual Language Program

A Two-Way Dual Language Immersion Program is provided at Montezuma ES. This is a bilingual education program for language minority and majority students. One class in each grade level provides instruction in Spanish and in English.

The Montezuma ES Two-Way Dual Language Immersion Program utilizes the following continuum of instruction:

  • Kindergarten: 80% Spanish language instruction; 10% English language instruction
  • 1st Grade: 80% Spanish language instruction; 20% English language instruction
  • 2nd Grade: 70% Spanish language instruction; 30% English language instruction
  • 3rd-5th Grade: 50% Spanish language instruction; 50% English language instruction

Participation in this program is by parental request; however, because of the amount of Spanish language instruction in kindergarten, English-speaking students usually only enter the program in kindergarten.
