Mission: The Dual Language Middle School is dedicated to the continued development of bilingual/ biliterate students through a strong academic program in English and Spanish. The Dual Language Middle School fosters pride in children’s heritage as well as an appreciation for the cultures of others. We believe that developing linguistically and culturally diverse students leads to higher levels of language proficiency, achievement, and self-esteem.

Vision: The Dual Language Middle School’s vision is to provide a place where bilingual/bicultural urban students can study in an environment that recognizes and celebrates their cultural identities.
