Our Dual Language Approach

Teacher meets with small group of high school students
Speaking multiple languages has been proven to enhance memory, concentration, problem-solving, critical-thinking, and multitasking skills. It helps build cross-cultural understanding, self-esteem, and positive attitudes toward global languages and cultures – and it broadens our students’ understanding of the global society we live in today. Those are just a few of the many great reasons why King-Chavez Neighborhood of Schools uses a dual language approach.
At KCCHS, we build upon the Dual Language Program that King-Chavez elementary and middle school students participate in. We empower students with a comprehensive foreign language program and multiple pathways to achieve the CA State Seal of Biliteracy. The CA State Seal of Biliteracy recognizes high school graduates who have achieved proficiency in speaking, reading, and writing at least one more language in addition to English. This distinguished gold seal appears on a diploma or transcript and is recognized as a statement of accomplishment by college admissions and employers.
