Dual Language Program
Meeker Elementary School is offering a Dual Language Immersion Program beginning in 2024-2025. Enrollment is for kindergarten only and instruction will be in both Spanish and English.
The dual language program housed at Meeker Elementary School is open to all of District 6 students and will eventually include one classroom per grade level. Meeker families will also have the option of choosing this program for their kindergarten student, but students do not have to be in the dual language program to attend Meeker.
Dual Language Immersion provides instruction and support for students to become fully proficient in English and Spanish. Students will study literacy, math, social studies, and science, as well as engage in specials classes like their peers.
