Congratulations to Washington Elementary School! Beginning in the fall of 2010 this California Distinguished School will be implementing a dual language immersion program in two kindergarten classrooms. This program will offer both English speaking and Spanish speaking students an exciting, enriching and challenging educational opportunity. Over their K-6 experience all students in the program will learn to read, write, and communicate effectively in Spanish and English while achieving high levels of academic success. Ultimately, the goal is for students to develop the bilingual skills and cross-cultural competencies needed to succeed in a multicultural society and global economy.
