The Dual Language Academy at Mary Harris Elementary will prepare students to meet the challenges of an interdependent world community by providing a bilingual and multicultural learning environment through immersion that enables participants to communicate in another language, master all curricular subjects, and develop intercultural understanding and respect.
ACADEMY INFORMATION & SUMMARY
The Dual Language Academy affords students the opportunity to become bi-literate in Spanish and English in order that they may interact comfortably and sensitively in both cultures as well as community and career settings. For the 2019-20 school year, the academy will host sixth graders only.
Following the research-based model of Drs. Gomez & Gomez, Crowley ISD encourages growth for these students in a challenging learning environment that research shows develops more cognitive pathways and ultimately opportunity as the students become bi-literate academically and socially.
