Sandy, Utah. Population 87,000. Immersion schools: 8
I know it can sometimes seem the only place I post about is Utah. But dear heavens, they are really the place in the country that’s doing immersion the most intensively. This is just one town, with a population of 87,461, and it’s got eight immersion elementary schools. That’s more than some states!
