Mollie Dawson Elementary


Dual Language

We are celebrating our seventh year as a Dual Language school, which means our students in the dual languages classes learn content in English and Spanish.

The goal of the program is for our young scholars to become bilingual, bi-literate, and bicultural. Grades Pre-Kindergarten through Fourth Grade have two-way dual language programs, where classes have both native Spanish and native English speakers learning together in the same classroom. Grade Five participates in the one-way program, where the class is composed of native Spanish speakers learning in Spanish and English.

Around the campus, a visitor will find many objects labeled with the object's name in Spanish (written in red) and in English (written in blue).
