Students learn to read first in their dominant language. Then, they spend equal amounts of time studying Language Arts in English and in Spanish in second grade. Math is taught in English, and Science and Social Studies are taught in Spanish. Students build fluency and comprehension through daily interactions in both languages with both English and Spanish dominant students.
