Inscripción para la lotería del programa de Inmersión Recíproca y opciones para los estudiantes de Jardín de Niños 'Kindergarten'

What is Woodland's Dual Language Program?
The Dual Language classroom will have native English and non-Spanish speaking students combined with native Spanish speaking students.  The day will be split: half of the day, students will be taught in English and the other half of the day the students will be taught in Spanish.

What are the goals of the Dual Language?
The goal of this Kindergarten through 5th grade program is for students to end 5th grade being able to speak, write, read and understand in each language at that grade level.  Student's academic performance will be at or above grade level.   Students will also demonstrate positive cross-cultural attitudes and behaviors.
