The Hughes Academy Partial Immersion Program is a continuation of a successful completion of the Partial Immersion Language Program at Blythe Academy of Languages or a demonstration of an equivalent level of language proficiency. Participating students develop second language proficiency in an academic context. The program features rigorous academic curriculum delivered through hands-on activities and opportunities for active involvement. Aligned with Foreign Language Standards Balanced Literacy Framework, students will develop the ability to think critically about the language and cultures across a broad range of subjects. Students accepted into this program for 2018-2019 will take Spanish Language Arts for an extended amount of time. The following year, these students will have Spanish Language Arts and Social Studies in Spanish.
Students in our Spanish Partial Immersion program are involved with many cultural events during the year. Some of these events are: a Pen Pal Intercambio with Spain, dancing lessons with Salsa of Greenville, a play at Blythe Academy of Languages, Spanish Club meetings, and Venezuelan cuisine lessons.
