English as a Second Language, PreK-12th Grade

The English as a Second Language Program focuses on developing proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing for English language learners.  Instruction is TEKS based academic content, as well as, language development.  Instruction is differentiated according to language proficiency levels while academically engaging students, and encouraging development of the English language.

Dual Language Program, PreK - 5th Grade

The Dual Language Program is a two-way bilingual program which integrates language minority and language majority students, and provides instruction in the minority language (Spanish) along with English.

The Dual Language Program in MISD is offered for qualified students in Kindergarten through 5th grade at Montgomery Elementary School and Stewart Creek Elementary School.  It is a partial immersion model for English speaking students and a bilingual model for native Spanish speaking students.  The program is designed to teach students a second language in a natural way, through subject content instruction and everyday classroom conversation.  The goal is to create biliterate students who can fluently write, read and speak English and Spanish.

Each Dual Language classroom’s student population is, ideally, made up of 50% English speakers and 50% Spanish speakers.  The Dual Language classroom teachers are certified Bilingual/ESL teachers.  Students must meet criteria, and are considered for the program only if their parents choose to have them participate.
