Spanish Immersion at César Chávez Elementary

In the early grades lessons are delivered primarily in Spanish. English is gradually introduced and increases as students progress through the grades.

Two-Way Bilingual Immersion at Montgomery

Marguerite Montgomery Elementary School  is excited to offer our Two Way Bilingual Immersion Program (TWBI)TWBI offers a fantastic opportunity to students in Davis. The program provides students with a complete academic program grounded in an educational environment that supports community action and celebrates cultural diversity. Students become orally fluent and academically proficient in Spanish and English. They acquire key language skills naturally and early in life, which enriches their cognitive ability in all subjects. Literacy in two languages broadens their academic, occupational and economic opportunities.
