What is Dual Language Immersion?
Dual Language Immersion is a way to learn academic content while acquiring another language at the same time. Students receive math, science, or social studies instruction in a target language, such as Spanish, French, or Chinese. Because of the teaching strategies used, the students learn the concepts and skills for the subject area and develop the ability to read, write, speak, and listen in another language.
The goal is for the students to develop literacy skills in both English and the target language, Mandarin Chinese, while attaining academic achievement that is at or above their grade level as measured by the Georgia Milestones or other state or school assessments.
Furthermore, students will develop a world cultural sensitivity. We strive to prepare Henry County Schools students academically, linguistically and socially for the challenges and needs of our global community.
It is important to note that entry into the program will be "first come, first served" through the application link opened during the registration window.
