Dual Language Magnet School

On January 9, 2014, the Board of Education voted to open a dual language magnet school beginning in the 2014-15 school year. This is a magnet school that will be open to all of District 89’s students. This is NOT a school that is designed to serve only our bilingual population. Half of the students will be native Spanish speakers and the other half will be native English speakers. Outside of the usual academic pursuits, all students who leave the school in 5th grade will be bilingual and bi-literate in both English and Spanish. More detailed information can be found in the dual language report to the Board and the summary document that followed.
