Red Clay Consolidated School District Chinese/Spanish Immersion Programs

Offering Children the Gift of a Second Language

 

The Red Clay Consolidated School District is offering a new exciting opportunity for elementary students attending Linden Hill Elementary SchoolMarbrook Elementary School and Mote Elementary School to engage in learning in a non-traditional way – by immersing them in two languages and cultures beginning in kindergarten. Students in these new “strand” programs will become proficient in both languages while learning the same content as their peers outside the program. Linden Hill will offer incoming kindergarten students the opportunity to apply to be in a Chinese Immersion program, while kindergarten students at Marbrook and Mote can apply to be in a Spanish Immersion program. These new programs will serve as one pathway in these schools; different from William C. Lewis Dual Language Elementary School, where all students are learning 2 languages.
