Beginning in the Fall of 2020, Daniel Morgan Intermediate School will be offering students in Grade 5 the opportunity to enroll in our Dual Language Immersion Program. In this program children, get the opportunity to learn another language early on by receiving 50% of instruction delivered in Spanish, and 50% delivered in English. Students enrolled in the program will be taught Social Studies, Science, and Language Arts in English, and Math and Language Arts in Spanish.
This approach provides an enriching learning environment for all students and builds greater cultural awareness and respect. During the last decade, multiple research studies have demonstrated the significant cognitive benefits derived from early language learning, as well as the potential long-term educational and career benefits that multilingual students accrue.
We look forward to providing this great learning opportunity to our Grade 5 students this fall!
