Sumac LSTEM offers a 50:50 dual language immersion program. Students spend half their day learning math and science in English, and the other half of their day is spent learning language arts and social studies in Spanish. This beautiful model allows two teachers to team up and plan instruction to meet all common core standards in English and Spanish through academic core areas. The program is in its fourth year of existence, currently being offered in Kindergarten thru third grade. Beginning in the 2015-2016 school year, the program will also be offered in Journeys (transitional kindergarten) and in fourth grade. Our goal is to offer the immersion experience beginning in Journeys thru fifth grade by the 2016-2017 school year.
