Tildenville is entering its 19th year running a successful Dual Language Program. 


Two-Way Dual Language Program model integrates language minority and language majority students in the same classroom with the goal of academic excellence and bilingual proficiency for both student groups. Students of both language groups are combined for all content instruction in an environment which promotes language and social equality while supporting full bilingual proficiency for both native and non-native speakers of English. Our Two-Way Dual Language Program strives to cultivate understanding and appreciation of other cultures, inspire self-esteem, and strengthen positive attitudes among students, their families, and the community. Careful attention is paid to the development of bilingualism, biliteracy, and academic attainment for all participants. Students are expected to achieve academically at or above grade level in all content areas in both languages.

Participating students enter the program in kindergarten and there is limited consideration for other grades with language assessment.

Please note that bus transportation is not provided for this program.
