Students in the Hodge Road Spanish Dual Language Immersion Magnet Elementary Program will develop language proficiency in Spanish and English. Teachers work through the Participate Program called Splash!  Core instruction is provided by two teachers, both of whom teach all students, one teaching in English, and one teaching in Spanish. Art, Music, Physical Education, etc. are taught in English.
 
The Language Immersion programs offer students an opportunity to develop English acquisition as well as a second language Spanish development. The Standard curriculum is utilized throughout all of the language immersion programs. Students, however, take their literacy, math, social studies and science classes in a second language. While students are together for their immersion experience, they have the opportunity to participate in globally focused specials, taught in English, during other parts of the day.  An intercultural focus is integrated into all classes.
 
Hodge Road is the only elementary school in Wake County that offers a Spanish Dual Language Immersion program.  We are in our 3rd year of operation and currently have 10 immersion classes: two in second grade, four in first grade and four in kindergarten.  Parents are able to apply for their child to be a part of this program during kindergarten enrollment in February and during Magnet application period in January.
