Bilingual Learning Experience

We offer two education paths for our students at Western Gateway. One path is a dual-language immersion experience, where students become bilingual and bi-literate, as they progress through their elementary grade levels. Together, classmates will learn to speak, learn, and write in two languages: English and Spanish.

Our other path is single-language instruction, and still follows our exploratory approach to education. Math, science, language arts, and history are woven through each grade level. This classroom group also learns about cultures and languages – through everyday experiences and conversational Spanish.

All our students, regardless of their language path, will grow in confidence, creativity, and competency as they learn about their world – and as they develop a sense of community and belonging here at home, at Western Gateway Elementary.
