About the Program:

The Two-Way Spanish Immersion (TWI) program is a K-12 program which graduates bilingual, biliterate students who love learning, exploring, getting outdoors, and making meaning! Class communities within the TWI program are comprised of 50% native Spanish speakers and 50% native English speakers. TWI students receive a majority of their instruction in Spanish in the primary grades with the percentage of instruction in Spanish reducing annually until the intermediate grades when instruction are balanced equally between the two languages. Students participating in this program develop a high level of proficiency in both their native language and their second language.

Finding a good fit: The Two-Way Spanish Immersion Program is a good fit for families who embrace the bilingual and bicultural nature of the program. In additional to bilingualism, families looking for outdoor exploration, applied learning, a small and consistent learning community, and a diverse student makeup will feel right at home.
