What is Two-Way Dual Language?
Students in the two-way dual language program receive instruction in both English and Spanish, providing them with the opportunity to learn to read, write and speak in both English and Spanish. Each class is comprised of both English-first speakers and Spanish-first speakers, creating a dynamic and effective Dual Language environment. You can learn more about the Two-Way Dual Language program on the DISD website (disd.org).
