    Forest Lake Area Schools offers Immersion Plus programming in which students are taught literacy instruction in English while other subject areas, including math and science, are taught in Spanish. There is growing evidence that developing literacy skills in a child’s first language is of considerable benefit to acquisition of a second language and to a child’s overall academic success. By providing literacy instruction in English at the elementary level, children have the opportunity to develop a strong foundation in literacy skills in English to ensure they don’t fall behind academically while scaffolding their learning of Spanish through the study of content areas.

    Students who enroll Forest Lake Area Schools Spanish Immersion program in elementary school will have the opportunity to continue with immersion courses throughout their secondary school years.
