At Carver-Lyon, we strive to be a school where caring and knowledgeable adults teach children to love learning, and to become honorable and responsible citizens and leaders of both the local and global communities.
To prepare our language immersion students to be leaders and global citizens, they will be immersed in a foreign language using a biliteracy model. Students will learn to read, write, speak and understand in both English and a second language by spending 50% of their instructional day immersed in a foreign language. A balanced literacy approach will be taught through developmentally appropriate content driven thematic units in both English and a foreign language. Connections between language and everyday lives will guide students to see themselves as not only biliterate communicators, but also as leaders and global citizens.
