• Spanish Dual Language Immersion at PCS

    Petaluma City Schools is excited to announce the start of a Spanish Dual Language Immersion program starting in kindergarten to be housed at McDowell Elementary School.

    What is Spanish Dual Language Immersion?

    Dual language immersion is an educational model that integrates native English speakers and native Spanish speakers in the same classroom for the entire school day. Students learn to speak, write and read at grade level in both languages with the goals of promoting high academic achievement, first and second language development, and cross-cultural understanding for all students.

    In dual language immersion programs, language learning takes place primarily through content instruction. Academic subjects are taught to all students through both Spanish and English. As students and teachers work together to perform academic tasks, the students' language abilities are developed, along with their knowledge of content area subject matter.
