Stedman Elementary is now offering the choice of Spanish Immersion for English-speaking and Spanish-speaking students in ECE4, Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade, Third Grade and Fourth Grade in 2019-2020. This program will add one grade level each year until it extends through 5th grade and students are bilingual/biliterate. The instructional model and curriculum are aligned in our English and Spanish classroom. Stedman will follow the DPS Language Allocation Guidelines. Kindergarten instruction in the Spanish classroom will be 90% Spanish and 10% English. First grade instruction in the Spanish classroom will be 80% Spanish and 20% English. (We will continue to offer English classrooms at each grade level for students who do not wish to participate in a Spanish classroom.)
For those who have never spent time learning in Spanish, we recommend that the latest they start the immersion program is 1st grade. Exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis.
Current Spanish Immersion Offerings (2019/2020): ECE-3 (full day, language development), ECE-4 (full day), Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade, 4th Grade
We look forward to welcoming your family to Stedman. Make Stedman your FIRST CHOICE today!
