Dual Language Immersion Program

Dual Language Immersion Program

In a global economy, why not prepare your child for tomorrow today.  Your child can learn to speak, read, and write in both English and Spanish!  
Monrovia Unified School District is pleased to announce its new dual language academy, FLAME.  FLAME, Foreign Language Academy of Monroe Elementary, is a dual language immersion program entering its third year with the introduction of the program to second grade students.  Each year, the program will add a grade level until each grade level from Kindergarten through 5th grade is participating. The goal of the Academy is that when students in the program leave primary education, they will be fully bilingual and bi-literate in both English and Spanish.
A typical day in this program will see students learning Spanish for part of the day and learning English for part of the day. Students are fully immersed in Spanish as part of the learning process.
The program is available at Monroe Elementary, Plymouth Elementary, and Wild Rose School of Creative Arts and Clifton Middle School. It's open to children who are entering TK kindergarten.  As space is limited in this program, parents are encouraged to check with the school in January for tour and registration information.
