Our Spanish Immersion Program
Adelante Selby Spanish Immersion School brings together Spanish and English speaking students and families for the opportunity of a promising future of being bilingual, biliterate, and academically enriched.
In an ever-expanding global economy, our nation will need its future leaders to be both biliterate and have an understanding of multiple cultures. What if your child could learn how to build relationships across cultures as they speak, listen to others in their native language, and learn better verbal and non-verbal cues while increasing their cognitive abilities? Our school not only provides a rigorous and innovative educational curriculum, but also prepares students to be future leaders.
The program flourishes due to its warm, nurturing, and family-centered culture. Immersion students are able to read, write, explain, analyze, and problem-solve in two languages!
The student population is composed of 50% Spanish-speaking students and 50% English-speaking students, and we have high expectations for them.
Students are expected to show high levels of proficiency in two languages by the time they exit RCSD's program in 8th grade (the 6-8 strand is offered at Kennedy Middle School).
