Dual Language

Dual Language Programs are those in which two languages are used for instruction. In Seminole County Public Schools (SCPS) the two languages are English and Spanish. The Program develops listening, speaking, reading and writing proficiency in both languages while maintaining high expectations and rigorous standards for all students.
