Spanish Partial Immersion
The Spanish Partial Immersion Program at the middle school level is a continuation of the elementary program offered at Key and Claremont Elementary Schools.
The program begins the middle school sequence and is designed to continue the development of Spanish language proficiency. The skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing are taught specifically through the language arts program and through content instruction in social studies and science. Student placement in the program is open to students who show appropriate proficiency in Spanish.
All middle school students who participate in the Spanish Partial Immersion Program follow the same core curriculum as students at each of the Arlington middle schools.
Bus transportation is provided for all students participating in the program who live more than 1.5 miles from Gunston Middle School.
Sixth grade students in the Spanish Partial Immersion program are on the Gators team. Seventh and eighth grade students are integrated with other students in one team at each grade.
Through our participation in Spanish Partial Immersion, Gunston is an International Spanish Academy site. International Spanish Academies are part of an international cooperative educational project between public schools in the United States, Canada, and the Ministry of Education and Science of Spain.
