Hurley Elementary School’s Dual Language Immersion Program

Hurley Elementary School offers the dual language immersion program to students in grades TK-6 whose primary language is Spanish, and who are English Language Learners. This program builds upon the student’s primary language of Spanish and emphasizes a strong English component to prepare the students for state standardized tests in English by second grade. Hurley’s dual language immersion program is a well-designed program that produces students who acquire the English language as well as or often better than children in all-English programs. Our program teaches the core subject matter at an early age in the student’s primary language, develops the literacy of the first language, and develops the proficiency of the English language.
The core content areas are taught in Spanish in grades K-1, and students are taught one hour of English Language Development each day. In second grade, students are taught two and and a half hours of Language Arts in Spanish, one hour of English Language Development, and all the other content areas are taught in English. In third grade, students are taught one hour of Spanish Language Arts, one and a half hours of English Language Arts, fifty minutes of English Language Development, and all the other subjects are taught in English. In grades 4-6, students are taught one hour of Spanish in either Social Studies or in Science, and they are required to apply the Spanish that they have learned using more complex vocabulary and thinking. Students in grades 4-6 design a presentation in either Social Studies or Science, and they present to an audience in Spanish at the end of each school year.
