Dual Language

We are now in our second year of our Dual Language program at Harvard Elementary. We have two classes of kindergarteners and two classes of first graders. Our Dual Language program provides students with the opportunity to become bilingual and bi-literate in Spanish and English by the time they leave Harvard in fifth grade. Our Dual Language students will be able to speak, read, and write in two languages! We hold all of our students to the expectation that they will achieve high levels of academic success. Our Dual Language program provides an additional way to increase the rigor of our students’ learning. As we implement this program, we will also be focusing on cross-cultural and sociocultural competence throughout our school in order to best prepare our students for the next steps in their education and life. If you have any questions regarding our Dual Language program, please contact the office at 253-298-4100.
