Core and Supplemental Learning Plan

Global Citizenship & Language Learning Pathways

  • Biliteracy Program - In our biliteracy program, students learn in both English and Spanish. In the early grades, the language emphasis is in Spanish and as students move through the grades, English instruction is increased. Our philosophy promotes developing, enriching and preserving the two languages.

  • Global Scholars through Global Cities Inc - This program is to connect students to other students from around the world through shared projects, learning, and discourse.

  • The Global Goals Project - Students learn about the Sustainable Development Goals for improving the world in education, healthcare, access to quality food and water, and the environment.  They generate projects to address one of the goals.

Science Programs
