• The Valenzuela Spanish Dual Immersion Program is housed at Maxine Hong Kingston School.

    We offer a Spanish Dual Immersion Program in grades Kinder through 6th grade. We offer a Spanish elective class in grades 7th and 8th. 

    The goal of our program is to graduate students who are bilingual/biliterate in English and Spanish. We implement the 90:10 model where the instruction is as follows:

    • K/1 90% instruction in Spanish - 10% instruction in English
    • 2nd Gr. 80%  Spanish - 20%  English
    • 3rd Gr. 70%  Spanish - 30% English
    • 4th Gr. 80%  Spanish - 20%  English
    • 5th Gr. 50%/50% 
    • 6th Gr. 40% Spanish - 60% English

    WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING  APPLICATIONS FOR KINDERGARTEN. 

    There are some spots available in other grade levels (4th-6th), however, students entering our program must be bilingual in Spanish/English.
