    Jeffreys Grove Language Immersion Magnet Elementary School offers a full Spanish Language Immersion Program. Applications are accepted for rising Kindergarten students. 
     
    We are a "program-within-a-school" meaning that there are traditional classes in our building as well as our Immersion classes. Half of our Kindergarten is traditional and half is Immersion.
     
    Our Spanish Immersion teachers - currently ten of our staff - come to us via the Participate Program. In our Spanish Immersion program, participating students develop fluency in reading, writing, speaking and listening in Spanish as well as in English. Students also learn to think in a second language, which is a high-level skill.
     
    In the Immersion program, students take their daily math, science, literacy and social studies classes in Spanish. Beginning in the second grade and continuing throughout the fifth grade, students have an English literacy block of instruction integrated into their daily instructional time.

    Through participating in the Full Spanish Language Immersion Program, students will:
    • develop proficiency in English and Spanish;
    • increase academic performance;
    • learn about culture and language; and
    • prepare to meet the challenges of a globally-dependent society.
     
    This language immersion program offers students an opportunity to develop English acquisition as well as Spanish language development. The NC Standard Course of Study 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.
