The two-way language immersion program is housed at Barbour Two-Way Language Immersion, 1506 Clover Ave.
At Barbour predominantly English-speaking students and predominantly Spanish-speaking students share each classroom. The goal is to promote bilingualism and bi-literacy, grade-level academic achievement, and positive cross-cultural attitudes and behaviors in all students. Barbour's kindergarten through 8th graders learn to read, write, listen and speak in Spanish and English; however, academic courses are taught in one language, which varies by grade.
