Welcome to Dual Language Immersion!
Chandler Unified School District is proud to offer a dual language immersion (DLI) program in Spanish and Mandarin Chinese. Our program of choice is currently offered at four elementary schools and two junior high schools. We implement a 50/50 research-based model in elementary schools, a 70/30 model in middle/junior high schools and a world languages continuation in high school. Students have the opportunity to start at an early age learning a new language while learning grade level content.
CUSD Program Goals
Students participating in the program will become bilingual, bi-literate, develop cultural awareness, and global citizenship skills.
