Choice Programs

  • Arts (Visual, Performing, and Communications)

    The elementary comprehensive arts program provides opportunities to develop and showcase performers. Children who enjoy creative expression through 2D and 3D art, television production, dance, strings, band, piano, percussion, vocal music, theatre, and the written word will flourish artistically and academically in our performing, visual, and communication arts programs. This program helps develop and nurture talents so students can realize their full potential and become shining stars. Self-discipline, teamwork, and personal confidence foster success in the classroom, on the stage, and in life.

    Spanish Dual Language

    Spanish Dual Language Programs, also known as "Two-Way Immersion" programs, allow students to develop proficiency in two languages by receiving content area instruction in both English and Spanish. Students, regardless of native language proficiency, are provided with ample exposure to both languages, allowing them to achieve academic excellence while becoming bilingual and biliterate. The program also emphasizes cultural awareness and sensitivity.

    Due to the rigor of Dual Language Programs after grade 1, applicants must receive an eligible score on a fluency exam to determine eligibility. Students entering a Spanish Dual Language Program for the first time in grades 2-5 must pass a fluency exam to determine eligibility prior to being made eligible for the Choice lottery.
