Dual Language

Allison Elementary is a One-Way Dual Language campus. 

Vision
The Dual Language vision at Allison is to provide a rigorous academic program that develops high linguistic and academic proficiency in two languages while simultaneously fostering positive cross-cultural attitudes.

Biliteracy Philosophy 
The Dual Language program at Allison Elementary is a well researched approach for promoting biliteracy, bilingualism, and biculturalism for students. The underlying goal is to prepare students for the future with abilities to listen, speak, read, and write in two languages, as well as develop an appreciation for different cultures. The Dual Language bilingual program provides children with the opportunity to learn two languages while maintaining high academic standards.
