Kings Beach Elementary School is a Two-Way Immersion School based on the 90/10 model. The program at Kings Beach Elementary School provides an immersion model for English-speaking students, as well as an additive bilingual model for Spanish-speaking students. This means that all students learn a second language without compromising their first language.
We serve students in Transitional K through 4th grades.
Emphasis on Spanish instruction in the early grades allows English-speakers ample exposure to the target language: Spanish. Spanish speakers have the opportunity to expand their vocabulary and build a strong base in their first language, enabling them to be more successful as they begin to acquire English orally, and later as they transfer reading and writing skills into English. By the end of fifth grade, the goal is that all students will be able to read, write, and speak fluently in both Spanish and English.
