Orange Co. Mandarin immersion school has spaces for fall

May 5, 2013

Loh_1The Mandarin Immersion Program at Bergeson Elementary in Capistrano Unified School District is still accepting applications for incoming 2013-14 Kindergarten.

This magnet program offers a unique educational experience with the goal of developing biliteracy, bilingualism, and biculturalism in elementary students. It is an educational model that provides academic instruction in English and Mandarin Chinese. The specific goals of this language immersion program are for students to develop high levels of language proficiency and literacy in both program languages, to demonstrate high levels of academic achievement, and to develop an appreciation for and an understanding of diverse cultures.

This is a very popular program and space is limited. The first Kindergarten class is filled but there are still a few spots left in the 2nd Kindergarten class!

Parents can contact Marion Bergeson Elementary School directly with any questions regarding the program. Interested parents will need to make an appointment to meet with Principal Scholl for an information/orientation session prior to submitting an Open Enrollment application by calling the Bergeson office at 949/643-1540.

Shih_1Children must be 5 years old by October 1, 2013, in order to apply for the 2013-14 school year.

For more information contact: Bergeson Elementary School at 949/643-1540 or visitwww.friendsofmip.com and www.capousd.org
