The Center for Spanish Language/IB PYP at Joyner Elementary offers the most extensive Spanish language program to elementary students in Wake County Schools. It creates a learning environment in which students use structured inquiry to help construct their own knowledge; strengthen literacy and communication skills in English and Spanish; increase positive, cross-cultural attitudes; and create an understanding of their world through community involvement and collaboration.

All students will receive literacy and communication instruction in Spanish as they learn to express themselves in two languages (English and Spanish). This instruction enables students to communicate with each other in two languages both inside and outside the classroom.

Curriculum: Center for Spanish Language/IB PYP

The Center of Spanish Language has a history of offering the most extensive Spanish program offered at a Wake County elementary school. All students in kindergarten through fifth grade receive instruction in Spanish every day. Along with the study of the language, students develop an understanding of Spanish culture through art, music, and dance. A perfect accompaniment to the language program, the IB program helps students ask questions through an inquiry model of teaching and learning. With an emphasis on community service, students become responsible, globally-minded citizens.

Bus route information for this school is currently unavailable.
