Carver Dual Language SchoolAt Carver Dual Language Elementary, our goal is to give every student the opportunity to increased success in the next stage of their education. Research shows that students who attend dual language schools generally have higher overall academic performance than students who attend single language schools.
Dual language education offers an exciting opportunity for students to reach high levels of academic achievement and to acquire strong proficiency in English and another language.
Students at Carver are expected to be truly bilingual and bi-literate in Spanish and English by the time they complete sixth grade. While students work to become proficient in a second language, they also develop an increased cultural awareness while reaching a high level of academic achievement. Students develop proficiency in the second language by hearing and using it to learn all of their school subjects rather than by studying the language itself.
While it's advantageous for students to be able to skillfully speak a second language in a multi-language environment, students with dual language skills are more in demand in the work-force and generally earn higher incomes as adults. Dual language students also experience and gain an appreciation of other cultures.
