Evansdale's Dual Language Immersion Program

Evansdale Elementary is a Dual Language Immersion (DLI) school with a 50/50 model, meaning that half of a student's instructional time is in English and half is in French. Children are assigned to a homeroom with other classmates and have a "partner" class. Students spend half the school day in their English classroom with a teacher who speaks English and the other half in their French classroom with a teacher who speaks French. Evansdale students are admitted by lottery in Kindergarten(and first grade if space is available) and continue in the program through the 5th grade.
