LINK TO REGISTRATION PAGE
Partial immersion is a means of acquiring a world language through content matter instruction. In this program, students develop communicative and academic proficiency in the target language while succeeding academically in all subject areas at levels comparable to those they would have reached if they had been schooled only in English. Beginning in 5 year-old Kindergarten, our elementary students in the partial-immersion program spend half the day studying the regular grade level curriculum and standards in classes conducted in the target language. The other half of the day is conducted in English. Mathematics and science are taught in the target language. English language arts, social studies and related arts are taught in English.
The first group of Lexington One students, who began the program in kindergarten, advanced to high school in the fall of the 2015–2016 school year. At the middle-school level, the students take two courses in the target language: a language arts course and a project-based course that explores real-world problems and cultural practices. Languages offered in our partial immersion program include French, Spanish, Chinese, and German.
Our 2017-18 partial immersion schools are:
- Deerfield Elementary (German, grades 5K-3)
- Gilbert Primary (Spanish, grades 5K-2)
- Gilbert Elementary (Spanish, grades 3-5)
- Meadow Glen Elementary (Mandarin Chinese, grades 5K-5)
