MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- The Mamaroneck school district is holding two information meetings about its dual-language English-Spanish program, Dos Caminos, for kindergartners on Thursday from 9:15-10:15 a.m. and 6:30-7 p.m. in Mamaroneck Avenue School's all-purpose room.
This program is open to all kindergartners who are entering school in September.
Join school officials as they discuss research highlighting the benefits of dual-language instruction and look at how they believe the dual-language program will help produce bilingual, biliterate and bicultural students.
Some of the benefits of dual-language programs include:
- Oral and written proficiency in two languages (students learn two languages effortlessly and authentically).
- High academic achievement.
- Cross-cultural understanding and respect (biculturalism).
- Cognitive enrichment, including enhanced executive control functions.
