Welcome to Harris Bilingual Immersion School!
Dual Language Immersion education is grounded in the principles of additive bilingualism and cultural pluralism. This orientation views language and culture as a resource, and thus, being bilingual and bicultural as being resource-rich. The goals of dual language immersion education are: (1) High levels of academic achievement in 2 languages, (2) Bilingualism and biliteracy, (3) Encompass culturally responsive learning environments that value inclusivity, equity and the differences of all students and the surrounding communities, (4) Develop students to be adaptive, open-minded, culturally competent and globally aware.
