Paul Breaux Middle School held a Spanish Immersion Program class visit on Thursday.
LPSS’ Spanish Immersion Program recognized its first seven students to complete the K through 8th program. 40 students began the program but only seven will actually graduate.
Monday their “graduation” ceremony will be held and today students participated in a panel discussion about their experience in the program. One student says she feels honored to have completed the program and was very appreciative of the opportunity.
English proficient immersion students are capable of achieving as well as, and in some cases better than, non-immersion peers on standardized measures of reading and Math.
