Program Description: DCSD implements a 50/50 dual language immersion (DLI) model. For half the school day, students learn math, science, social studies and second language literacy using either French, German, or Spanish as the primary language. The remainder of the day the students continue their studies using English as the primary language.
The purpose of the DLI model is to prepare students for the global world. Students who have the ability to communicate with global partners and who possess intercultural competence will be prepared for the workforce. The program includes a K-12 articulation. Students may enter the program through a lottery in Kindergarten or first grade depending on space availability. The students will continue through the program with the goal of taking the Advanced Placement language exam in the 10th grade, if not sooner.
