Dual Language Program

Tierrasanta Elementary School is pleased to offer a 50/50 Dual Language Spanish Immersion Program from Kinder through 5th Grade! Students entering the program in 2nd-5th grades must be native Spanish speakers or transfer from a Spanish Immersion School. In order to be eligible for our Dual Language program you must commit to staying at the school for 6 years (K-5th) or, through 5th grade if your child enters after kindergarten. If you know if an impending move or the potential for an impending move you are unfortunately, not eligible. A six year commitment letter must be signed during registration. Each new kindergarten class will still have an English only strand available for those not interested in Spanish Immersion. The Spanish immersion classes are taught in a team teaching setting with half of the day taught in Spanish and half in English. For more information on the benefits of Dual Language programs see: www.cal.org/twi/toolkit/PI/Basics_Eng.pdf

If you are interested in Spanish Immersion for your student for the 2023-24 school year, please indicate your interest on this form. Kinder-5th grades only. Please note we do not offer Spanish Immersion for UTK.


Due to the high level of interest in the Immersion program, priority is given to those registering at 
their neighborhood school site. Neighborhood enrollment does not guarantee placement in the Spanish Program. Students who have Choiced in will only be considered for the Spanish Immersion program if space is available after neighborhood families have enrolled


All families should make sure to complete the 23-24
Spanish Immersion Interest form to be placed on the list for consideration in the next school year. Students are accepted on a First Come First Served basis and submissions are time stamped.
