Dual Language at Kelly School

At Kelly School, we engage scholars in a comprehensive two-way Immersion Model of Dual Language instruction that promotes academic excellence in two languages, English and Spanish. We educate our youth to become bilingual, biliterate, and multi-cultural through a partnership among scholars, families, and staff.  We value language, culture, and diversity in a nurturing, safe, and healthy learning environment.

To this end, our Dual Language Instruction:

  • Fosters excellence and mutual respect that builds upon the unique identities and linguistic attributes the scholars bring to the learning community

  • Promotes a sense of belonging and pride for bilingualism and biliteracy

  • Champions multicultural perspectives

  • Cultivates high quality, rigorous standards-aligned instruction

  • Embraces family engagement and values cultural contributions toward success for all learners
