API scores don't tell it all. Of course the overall scores will be lower in a Dual Immersion environment where the children are learning in two languages but if you visit and see what is really going on behind the scenes it is truly remarkable. The teachers and staff are dedicated and passionate about their school and its purpose. The native Spanish-speaking children are empowered and the native English speaking children are given a gift that does not exist in the traditional school model. This school is a blessing to this little community and the positive impact these amazing teachers are having on these children will come to fruition as these children move on to higher education and grow into multiculturally aware and accepting young adults. Could not be a happier with our choice.

As of the 2009-10 school year Kings Beach Elementary is all dual immersion and is K-3. The same dual immersion program continues for 4-8 at North Tahoe Middle School...so the dual immersion one program that is now K-8 and is at two sites. It is an awesome program with awesome teachers and is a great way to give your child a bilingual/bicultural experience. It's a great positive environment with very committed teachers. I highly recommend learning more about dual immersion so that you can decide it it's for your family.
