K-8 Dual Language Summer Program

Dates: July 6 - July 30, 2021

Duration: 19 days

Time: 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Locations: K-4 at Lopez and 5-8 at Shull


Curriculum Focus: LAL and Math basic skills

Program is only open to ELs in levels 1 and 2 who have shown significant academic deficits this year.


The Perth Amboy Public School District has created a dual language immersion program that begins in preschool and continues through eighth grade. This research-based program fosters bilingualism and biliteracy, as students develop academic and linguistic skills in both English and Spanish. The Dual Language Program has expanded to include approximately 1,200 students. The summer program would allow them to further improve their biliteracy skills in reading and math.


Students will be selected for the K-8 program using STAR scores and teacher recommendations.
