DLI Opportunity for District Kindergartners

Princeton Public Schools offers Dual Language Immersion (DLI) Classes at Community Park School.  We are happy to announce that we were able to open the program at Community Park to all district incoming Kindergartners this year.  Spots are still available and registration is open. 

In Dual Language Immersion classrooms, students spend half of the day learning core academic subjects in Spanish with a Spanish-speaking teacher and the other half of the day learning in English with an English-speaking teacher.  The goals of a dual language education are for all students to develop high levels of language proficiency and literacy in both languages, to demonstrate high levels of academic achievement, and to develop an appreciation for and an understanding of diverse cultures.  Currently, students who attend a DLI class in Kindergarten can continue in this model through fifth grade.  There are plans to design a DLI or Advanced Language program for students learning in a DLI model as they enter middle school.

If you are interested in learning more about the Dual Language Immersion program at Community Park School for your incoming Kindergartner, please call Ms. Chris Tollefsen, School Registrar for Community Park School at (609) 806 – 4203.
