New in 2019-2020, your child has the opportunity to become fluent in English and Spanish through our Dual Language program. Native English speakers and Spanish speakers learn together and from one another in a teaching approach that boosts students' mental abilities and increases creativity and problem solving.
Right now, millions of students here in the U.S. are lacking the connectivity, technology and skills required for success in today’s digital economy. That’s why Verizon has been working to help foster digital inclusion through a transformative education program called Verizon Innovative Learning. It’s a key part of our goal to help move the world forward for all through our Citizen Verizon plan. We are entering our third year in partnership with Verizon to provide devices and internet access to every student and teacher on our campus.
