How many Canyons District schools offer dual-language immersion programs?

Canyons’ first immersion classes opened in 2009, the same year that the District was founded. The District is now home to 19 elementary and secondary school immersion programs where more than 10 percent of CSD’s 34,000 students are learning Chinese, French or Spanish. A model of bilingual instruction dating back to the 1960s, immersion programs are surfacing in classrooms around the globe as an efficient path to proficiency in a world language. Children in dual language immersion programs spend half the day learning core subjects in English and the other half learning in a target language. Utah’s model extends through high school where, if students pass an Advanced Placement exam with a score of 3 or above, they can start taking college-level courses for early college credit. The higher education partner that’s co-teaching CSD’s college-level courses is the University of Utah. Curious about the courses and how they’ll operate? You can find more information on CSD’s homepage
