Abstract

As the number of English language-learning students increases in the U.S., the need for schools to find and provide effective services for these students is critical. Dual-language educational models have shown the greatest level of success with education students whose primary language is Spanish. The Inter-American Magnet School in Chicago practices the oldest and most successful dual-language program in Illinois. Student achievement scores are routinely above state and national averages in reading, writing, and math. By examining this program and its characteristics, educators may be able to identify factors that contribute to the effectiveness of this model.
