Dual immersion celebration

Dual immersion sixth-graders perform a skit during the program’s year-end celebration last week at Jackson Hole High School.

Joyful shouts and chatter in English and Spanish filled the halls of Jackson Hole High School last week for an annual celebration of the dual immersion program.

Dual immersion — meaning equal numbers of native Spanish speakers and English speakers share a classroom and learn half the day in each language — is a program Teton County School District introduced in 2009. The program is designed to help bring up the test scores of students who don’t speak English as their first language, while promoting multiculturalism.
