Dual Immersion Program


Burlingame School District Board recognizing the need to better prepare our students for the 21st century approved the development of the Two-Way Bilingual Immersion Program in the fall of 2007 at McKinley Elementary School. The Two-Way Bilingual Immersion program provides an immersion model for English-speaking students and a bilingual model for Spanish-speaking students. The content of the curriculum is the same as English-only classrooms and meets all the state standards.  The goal of the immersion program is to make students, whether they enter as English or Spanish speakers, fully bilingual through grade 8.

The Dual Immersion Master plan will be updated during the 2021/22 school year. Parents, teachers, and administrators will work together to develop a new master plan that reflects the needs of not only all current students participating in the program but also all future students.
