Two-Way Spanish/English Immersion Program

The Cabrillo Unified School District’s Two-Way Spanish/English Immersion Program at Hatch Elementary is an alternative program of the Cabrillo Unified School District. Participation in the Two-Way Spanish/English Immersion Program will challenge and stimulate your child’s cognitive, social and linguistic development.

An attempt will be made to have 50 percent of the student body be English-speakers and 50 percent of the student body be Spanish-speakers. Ratios are kept as close as possible to the optimum. English-speakers may enter at the Kindergarten or first grade levels. Spanish-speakers may enter at Kindergarten, first or second grade levels. Bilingual students may be admitted at any grade level depending on their level of literacy in Spanish and their oral English proficiency. Skills will be assessed by Immersion staff.
