Dual Language Immersion Program Mission

What Is Dual Language Immersion

  • Dual Language Immersion is where students receive instruction in two different languages helping children become bilingual.  Desert Thunder School uses a 50/50 model where students are instructed in English 50% of the day, and in Spanish 50% of the day.  Features of the program include:

    • Dual Language instruction begins in preschool
    • All students in grades K-8 receive a Dual Language education
    • Students in 7-8 grades take Spanish at Desert Edge High School
