Two-Way Bilingual Immersion Academy

The Two-Way Bilingual Immersion (TWBI) Academy is a bilingual program offered to both Spanish-speaking and English –speaking students in which the students learn how to read, write, and speak in both English and Spanish.

Our students become fluent and literate in two of the world’s most widely spoken languages.  They meet or exceed district norms in reading, mathematics and language development in both Spanish and English.  Our students have proven their academic ability; many have qualified as GATE students based on their high test scores on the California Standards Test (CST).

They gain self-esteem and an appreciation for their community through an enriched, positive learning environment that fosters cultural exchange and celebrates diversity.  The social interaction between students is a joy to behold. They truly learn from one another, developing high levels of confidence and self esteem through their study of two languages.  Learning comes alive as the beauty of both languages is explored through literature, song, and dance.

 

The Academy’s Vision

To provide our students with the academic and social skills necessary to become leaders in a multi-lingual world, through an educational model based on the latest findings in linguistic and brain research.
