Adelaide Price school is one of only two in the state to receive the 2018 Seal of Excellence award from the California Association for Bilingual Education (CABE). The award honors schools that have created effective programs for their English learners.
Price Elementary School serves nearly 750 students in AESD, with 50% classified as English Learners (ELs), 90% speaking Spanish as their primary language, and 50% enrolled in the Dual Language Immersion (DLI) Academy.
The program’s goals are to develop language proficiency for all students in both English and Spanish; ensure academic excellence by increasing scholastic achievement in two languages; cultivate an understanding and appreciation of diverse cultures; and empower parents to become active participants in their children’s education.
The DLI program at Price follows a 90:10 model of instruction, which AESD offers at six elementary schools.
