Spanish Dual Language


This program was initiated by parents and the school who saw the success of the French-English Dual-Language program and wanted to expand it to include Spanish.
The first Spanish-English Dual-Language class began in 2012 with one kindergarten class. As the first class(es) of students move up the school all the way to 5th grade, the Spanish and French Dual-Language Programs will grow with them.
Why Spanish?

Spanish is spoken throughout the Americas and the rest of the world. One of the official languages of the United Nations, it is also the official language in 14 countries. The Spanish-speaking world is rich in diversity, and children who participate in the Dual-Language Program at PS 133 are also tapping into a long association the school has had with Spanish-speaking communities in New York.

English- and Spanish-speaking children learn both their primary and a secondary language in an immersion environment. Following a 50/50 model, 50% of the students are English-speaking and 50% Spanish-speaking, and half the daily instruction for students will be in Spanish and the other half in English.
