Dual Language Immersion Program

Dual Language Immersion

The Dual Language Immersion program at West View Elementary is an in-depth English-Spanish curriculum that begins in kindergarten, enabling students to develop proficiency in both languages. It's proven to strengthen academic achievement and cultivate an understanding and appreciation of different cultures. Other benefits include:

  • Improved working memory and attention span
  • Better problem-solving skills
  • Stronger literacy skills
  • Improved communication skills
  • Future increased scholarship opportunities and employability

The program is conducted by a dedicated group of passionate dual language instructors, including Kelsey Pavelka, one of just nine teachers in Indiana selected as an "Outstanding Teacher" by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
