An all-immersion school in Scottsdale

The Arizona Republic reports that every single student at Pueblo Elementary School in Scottsdale will soon spend half the day learning in Spanish:

“Principal Art Velarde said the immersion program has proven so popular that it was no longer feasible to offer a non-immersion program.

‘I only had 12 students in the conventional strand for kindergarten next year, and eight of those were there because they hoped to gain admission to the immersion program the next year,’ Velarde said.”

The story touts Utah’s immersion program as a model.
