Two-Way Language Immersion Program

Viejo School in Year 4 of Two-Way Program

Viejo Elementary is in its seventh year of being a Two-Way Language Immersion program.  We are very excited to offer this program to our new incoming Kindergarten students. Our award-winning Two-Way Language Immersion program is exclusive to Viejo,  Las Palmas and San Juan Elementary Schools. This program offers our students a unique and exciting opportunity to attain the priceless gift of fluency and literacy in two languages: English and Spanish.

The program was started in September 1992 with a grant from the United States Department of Education. Students begin in kindergarten and continue in the program through grade 5. A variety of teaching strategies, learning materials and activities enhance the students’ academic learning, language acquisition and social skills. Families can continue the Two-Way program for grades 6-8 at Newhart Middle School, Marco Forster Middle School or Bernice Ayer Middle School.

School district standards, aligned with Common Core State Standards, and grade-level competencies are taught in all subject areas at all levels. Our program focuses on academic excellence and literature in both languages throughout the curriculum.

The Two-Way Immersion program is voluntary and families must apply to enter due to high demand.
