Dual Language in D205
Elmhurst D205 is committed to providing the best possible education for ALL students. We are excited to begin our journey into dual language programming in the district! Our first ever dual language program will begin next school year 2018-2019 at Conrad Fischer Elementary School. We have convened a dual language committee comprised of a variety of stakeholders to explore details and possible future programming. The goal of dual language programs is for students to become bilingual, biliterate and bicultural. We look forward to providing this opportunity for Elmhurst students! For more information on dual language programming in Elmhurst, please visit our website.
