TUSD K-8 Dual Immersion Program
Immersion is defined as a method of foreign language instruction in which the regular school curriculum is taught through the medium of the language. That is, the foreign language is the vehicle for content instruction; it is not the subject of instruction itself.
In the K-6 Osborn School Two-Way Immersion Program, Spanish is used as the language of instruction throughout the elementary school years. English is introduced gradually into the curriculum. Parents may choose to have their child continue in the Immersion program at Dutcher Middle School for grades 7 and 8.
Parents select a two way immersion program to challenge and stimulate their child’s cognitive, social and linguistic development. Two-way immersion education can provide children with unique linguistic and cultural advantage in today’s world.
