Dual Language Program (Bilingual Language)

The mission of the Harrison Middle School Bilingual Program is to provide students the opportunities to learn, read write, and speak well in two languages. We promote a healthy school environment that values diversity and high academic achievement for all.


Our Dual Language Program continues to offer classes in Math, Science, Social Studies and Spanish Language Arts.  We have grown our program over several years to the benefit of our students.  We offer a 50/50 Bilingual model in which half of the classes taken are in Spanish and the other half are in English.


In addition to our Dual Language program we have ESL classes ranging from Beginning ESL to Advanced ESL.
