P-12 Chinese Dual Language Program
Dual language education not only promotes skills that students will need for the global job market, but also helps students reach higher levels of cognitive and academic functioning. In addition to the many benefits of being biliterate, research studies have shown that students in dual language programs either develop academic skills on the same level as, or superior to, their peers in English-only classes.
With Mandarin Chinese being the most spoken language in the world next to Spanish and English, the Chinese P-12 dual language program will benefit all student groups as it continues to foster bilingualism, biliteracy, and multicultural competency in the 21st century.
