Dual Language Immersion

The Belvidere School District offers Dual Language Immersion Programs that value the equal acquisition of two languages, English and Spanish.  Students participating in this program spend part of the day learning academic content in English and Spanish.  Dual Language Immersion classrooms develop high levels of academic achievement through instruction in two languages.  Students can achieve proficiency in both English and Spanish within an environment that embraces cultural diversity and strives for excellence.  Through participation in this program, students are prepared to earn the Seal of Biliteracy or the Commendation Toward Biliteracy.

Only non-EL students who were previously enrolled in a Dual Language program in middle school can participate in this program.
