Kindergarten Dual Language Spanish Immersion

Welcome to Kindergarten webpage: immersion imageOne of the unique excellent opportunities WDMCS offers is a Dual Language Spanish Immersion program. The program starts in kindergarten at Western Hills Elementary, but students from other attendance areas may be able to join the program. 

The Dual Language Spanish Immersion program offers 50/50 instruction, meaning students learn in English half the time and Spanish half the time. About half of the students are native Spanish speakers, and half come from other language backgrounds. The program promotes high academic achievement in both English and Spanish in an environment that embraces diversity and strives for excellence.

After Enrollment

Welcome to Kindergarten webpage: after enrollmentimageOnce your kindergartner has been enrolled, your family will wait to be placed at a specific elementary school. 

After you learn your placement, you’ll be able to complete Tiger Access—”next steps” for families after enrollment—and attend your school’s Kindergarten Roundup and Experience.
