Applications for elementary school language immersion programs in MCPS are now available. The application deadline for the 2018–2019 school year is Friday, May 4.
Elementary school language immersion programs begin in kindergarten and are offered in Chinese, French and Spanish. The district offers three Spanish, two French and two Chinese elementary language immersion programs at seven sites in the county. Both the French and the Spanish programs are total immersion. In total immersion, all core subjects, including reading/language arts, are taught in the target language. Two of the Spanish programs and both Chinese programs are partial immersion. In partial immersion, some core subjects are taught in the target language.
