Applying to Language Immersion Schools

  • Who Is Eligible?

    Students in grades K-5 can apply to attend Jeffreys Grove Elementary (Spanish Immersion) for the 2018-19 school year.

    Students in grades K-4 can apply to Hodge Road Elementary (Spanish Dual Language Immersion) and Stough Elementary (Mandarin Chinese Immersion). Fifth graders applying to these two schools will only be considered if they have a younger sibling applying.

    Demonstrating Mastery

    Immersion Programs start in kindergarten. Any students initially selected in grades 1-5 must also show language mastery for the requested grade level to be assigned as a magnet student to an Immersion Magnet School.

    Students in grades 1-5 that are initially selected will be contacted by the school to schedule an Immersion Assessment to determine the student’s language level.

    • If the student’s language level is not at an appropriate level for the assigned grade, the student will be assigned back to their previously assigned school for the next school year.
    • If the student’s language level is at an appropriate level for the assigned grade, the student will be contacted by the school to finalize their assignment at the school.
