Spanish Immersion Learning
Gage offers a 90:10 immersion model for students in two sections of Kindergarten and two sections of 1st grade. This program will be filled as part of the district-wide options in Rochester Public Schools Kindergarten registration process. The Spanish Immersion program offers instruction during the day primarily in Spanish. Classroom teachers will instruct in Spanish for reading, math, social studies, and science subject areas, while special area classes will be conducted in English. Teachers are licensed elementary teachers proficient in both Spanish and English. This program covers the same curriculum and holds the same standards for success as our traditional kindergarten and 1st grade programs.
