Uvalde’s Dual Language Program is an academic experience designed for students to develop stronger cognitive and academic skills through the development of onlevel bilingualism and biliteracy. Through a rigorous curriculum, students who participate in the program are academically instructed in English and Spanish, from Pre-Kinder to 5 th grade. As a result, students have the opportunity to master both languages and enhance their education by developing the ability to fluently speak, read, write, and think critically in English and Spanish, which allows them to compete successfully in a global economy.
