Chinese Immersion

Ridgecrest Elementary houses one of seven Dual Language Immersion Programs in Canyons School District.  In our Chinese Language program, students are immersed in the Chinese language through a 50/50 model of instruction.  Students are taught for 50% of the day in English and 50% of the day in Chinese.  In the English classroom, students are taught reading, writing, language skills, and some mathematics.  In the Chinese classroom, students are instructed in Chinese literacy, science, social studies, and mathematics.  The immersion model has proven to be the most effective model for learning a second language.  Studies have shown that students who are in immersion programs score as well or better than their peers on standardized tests.
