Todos AdelanteOur school community continually implements new initiatives that improve student performance. One of these initiatives is the Passport Program in grade four, which provides the students with instruction in Spanish. West Towson Elementary School was one of ten elementary schools chosen to participate in the Spanish language instruction pilot. The goal of the program is to enable students to graduate with high-intermediate or low advanced proficiency in a second language. The elementary program’s focus is on listening and speaking. Students will learn academic language that coincides with the content of their other classes so that the experience becomes more immersive. As students move into the middle and high school levels of language instruction, there will be a growing focus on balancing the reading and writing components of language proficiency with the conversational piece.
