Dual Language Program

The goal of dual language programs is to prepare bilingual and biliterate students to achieve high levels of success academically, linguistically and socially. In RUSD, our dual language schools follow an 80/20 model in which kindergarten students receive 80 percent of their daily instruction in Spanish and 20 percent in English. By fifth grade, children spend half of the day learning in each language. The bilingual staff is dedicated to helping our students not only reach the RUSD North Star goals, but to do so as bilingual, biliterate young adults.
