    Spanish-English Dual Language Choice Program in Lake Washington School District

    Lake Washington School District has developed a dual language Spanish-English program at Einstein Elementary School. This year, the program serves students from Kindergarten through fourth grade. During the 2022-23 school year, fifth grade will be added to the Dual Language Program.

    The dual language program has instruction in two languages, with half of the time taught entirely in Spanish, and the other half in English. Each dual language class is composed of approximately 50% native Spanish speakers and 50% English speakers. Language learning happens through content instruction and interaction between students. Subjects such as math, science, English language arts and social studies, are taught to all students in Spanish and/or English.

    Incoming kindergarten students for 2022-23 who reside within the Einstein attendance area will have preference for enrollment in the program for 2022-23. Because most students remain in the program through grade 5, there may be limited number spaces for new first and second grade students next year. Preference for open spaces is given to students who reside within the Einstein attendance area. If more students in grades K-2 apply than there are spaces, students will be selected for these spaces using the choice school lottery and wait list process.
