VISTA Dual Immersion Program

  • Attention All VUSD Kindergarten Parents!
    Enroll your child in the VISTA Dual Immersion Program

    At Mountain View Elementary

    What is a Dual Immersion Program?
    A Dual Immersion Program is a way to learn academic content while acquiring another language at the same time. Students receive math, science, or social studies instruction in their native  language of Spanish or English. Because of the teaching strategies used, the students learn the concepts and skills for the subject area and develop the ability to read, write, speak, and listen in another language. They will be completely bi-literate in both English and Spanish at the end of the program, which concludes at the end of their 6th grade year.
