Current research demonstrates that fully proficient bilingual individuals outperform monolinguals in the areas of divergent thinking, pattern recognition, and problem solving. CMCSS believes that students will be well served by a quality Spanish immersion education that ensures high proficiency in more than one language at no cost to English language academic performance.
CMCSS will inform the community and survey interest and support for this type of educational model. All community members interested in learning more were invited to attend an interactive informational meeting with experts from add.a.lingua at Barksdale Elementary School at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 28.
