The instructional pattern in GVA-Aurora is as follows:  

 

Kindergarten - 80/20

  • Students spend 80% of their day in Kindergartners learning all their subjects in their target language (French, Mandarin, or Spanish) and 20% in English. 

1st Grade - 70/30

  • Students spend 70% of their day in their target language and 30% in English. 

2nd - 5th Grade - 50/50

  • Students alternate Week between their target language and English. 1 full week in their target language, the next full week in English.

We refer to this as the A/B program.

 

Middle School

  • Students have 30% a day in their target language following their AP (Advance Placement) track. 

Our goal is for our students to achieve a higher level entrance in their target language by High School.
