The Spanish Immersion Edge...

Offered to entering First Graders at Bedford Heights, Meadow Creek and Viridian Elementary.

Language is the most essential form of communication among human beings. As technology redefines society, our world becomes smaller as we interact with people of other nations. Our businesses and government will rely on individuals who are linguistically competent and culturally sophisticated to negotiate international transactions.

 

Students in the HEB ISD Spanish Immersion program have the unique opportunity to gain an international edge at an early age. They will not just study a second language; they will live it, experience it, and use it, so that it will become part of them.


In addition to instilling the pure ability of bilingualism (speaking) and biliteracy (reading and writing), studies show that students in the Spanish Immersion program tend to score better on test scores, develop an appreciation for diversity, and gain a higher self-esteem.
