Mandarin and Spanish Immersion

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION


Fremont Unified School District offers two Immersion programs: Spanish and Mandarin. The district's Immersion program is open to non English-speaking and English-speaking students. Immersion education is an alternative educational model designed to provide students with fluency and literacy in two languages. In these programs, all students develop literacy in the target language first with the gradual addition of English. Students in the Immersion program are taught using the same California State Standards as all other students in the district. The Immersion program is offered in Spanish for students in grades K-7 and Mandarin in grades K-6.
