Spanish Dual Language Immersion Programs

Robbinsdale Area Schools has been a pioneer in offering language immersion learning opportunities to students for over 30 years.  Our district was the second district in Minnesota to offer the opportunity for students to be immersed in a second language.  Since welcoming our first immersion kindergarten class in 1986, Robbinsdale has remained a leader in language immersion education offering students a comprehensive program to support students' academic and language development from Kindergarten through grade 12.  In our programs, students learn the same rigorous Robbinsdale Area Schools curriculum while gaining advanced levels of proficiency in both Spanish and English.
