Hear From Our Dual Language Partners

When we provide opportunities to our students, their achievements and passion for the world know no limits.

This training exceeded my expectations in terms of quality and effectiveness, significantly enhancing my understanding of dual language programs and positively impacting my professional practices as our school system moves forward with the implementation of an elementary dual language program. Moreover, the training provided valuable insights into effective instructional strategies for supporting language development, as well as strategies for collaborating with colleagues, families, and community members to promote students’ linguistic and academic success. These insights will prove to be beneficial as we are planning our start-up in implementation of a dual language program next school year.”

Chandra Krantz, Ed.D
Harford County Public Schools Supervisor of World Languages and English Learning Programs

It’s an outstanding program that has afforded my children the opportunity to learn a second language at young ages. They are learning more than the Spanish language, they are learning about different cultures around the world.”

Amy Tejda
Parent at Weddington Elementary

Traditionally we have seen that our dual language students have outperformed, and when I say outperform, not by 5 or 10 percent proficiency, I’m talking about a 20 percent gap between their test results and our traditional test results.”

Latreicia Allen
Former Principal, William H. Owen Elementary

In terms of closing the achievement gap, dual language is doing it in a way that is much better than our typical [ELL] programs. When children can become proficient in their native language, I think they’re able to leverage it as they’re learning English.”

Former Principal, Selma Elementary
