About Us/Sobre nosotros
Dual Language Education/Educación bilingüe
Dual language education provides students a host of academic, cognitive, social and emotional benefits. People who are bilingual tend to have better task planning, more flexible thinking, longer attention spans, and the ability to multitask than people who are monolingual. Being bilingual also provides the ability to see the world from more than one perspective, which is an ongoing boon in today’s globalized world.
What is Spanish Dual Language?/¿Qué es la inmersión dual en español?
Spanish Dual Language is carefully designed to support students’ learning academic standards in two languages. Language instruction is carefully integrated into all subject areas so that students are learning not only new concepts but also deepening their grasp of both English and Spanish. Spanish-speaking and English-speaking children serve as language models for each other. At Quarry Trail, our 50/50 model means that all students spend half the day learning in Spanish from a Spanish-speaking teacher and half the day learning in English from an English-speaking teacher.
