The 2024-25 G.L.A.D application window for next school year is now open for registration!

If you are interested in our Dual Language Immersion Program for your child for Transitional Kindergarten (TK) or Kindergarten (K) for the next school year, our G.L.A.D. program will provide the foundation for your child to become bilingual and bi-literate.

For the next school year, you will have the choice to have your child apply to be a part of the Spanish Dual Language program at either Imperial or Williams Elementary Schools or the French or Spanish Dual Language IB programs at Carpenter Elementary School.
