COVINGTON MIDDLE SCHOOL FINE ARTS ACADEMY

Dual Language

We are excited to offer Spanish Dual Language at Covington! We know what research tells us about brain development and resulting high achievement of students who are bicultural and biliterate in two or more languages. Beginning in the 6th grade, this rigorous program provides Spanish for Spanish Speaker Language Arts, World Cultures, Success Advisory Class, and a Mini-Elective class, all taught in Spanish.

Why Multilingual People have Healthier, More Engaged Brains  Educators often focus on the language skills students who are still learning English lack, but bilingualism is a huge neuro-strength. The ability to speak more than one language means a strong, healthy and complex brain.
