 2017-2018

Nickajack has added two 1st grade classes to our Dual Language English/Spanish Immersion program!  Last year's Kindergartners will move up to 1st grade and we will welcome our second group of Kindergarten students to the program.  This unique model provides instruction and support for students in learning both languages.  Students will split their day between instruction in Spanish and English. 

  • We will continue to grow this program each year through Grade 5.

  • We will instill cultural competence and enhance communication among our students and community. 

  • Our vision and mission is to develop and honor the greatness in everyone and help every child to become a leader. 

  • Our Dual Language English/Spanish Immersion program will help students to become bi-lingual and bi-literate in an ever changing world.
