Inside a language immersion school

At language immersion schools, students spend half the day learning in English and half the day learning in their target language. Here's a day in the life at Broadway Elementary School, a K-6 language immersion school in Venice, California.

This video is part of our Cool School Models series, which features seven new and emerging school models. Across the country, some standout schools have thrown out the old playbook and created something totally new. Kids tend to love these schools, as do the educators who work there, which makes for creative, innovative learning environments where kids grow and thrive. Check out the other six emerging school models (project-based learning; high-expectations, high-support school; place-based learning; Montessori; environmental science; and performance-based learning) to get a glimpse of what’s possible — and then look for schools like these near you.
