Mandarin Language Immersion
This language immersion program offers students an opportunity to develop English acquisition as well as Chinese language development. The NC 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. The immersion program begins in kindergarten and continues through 5th grade. Students seeking to join the program after kindergarten will be assessed to ensure ability to speak, read and write in the target language appropriate for the grade level they are seeking to join. The program continues at Oberlin Magnet Middle School and Brougton Magnet High School.
