Cameron Dual Language Elementary

The dual language program at Cameron Elementary is a research-based educational program in which students learn a second language through academic instruction. 

Cameron Elementary uses the 50/50 two-way immersion dual language model. Through this model, students receive English instruction 50% of the time and Spanish instruction 50% of the time. By 6th grade or before, students are bilingual, biliterate, and develop a cross-cultural awareness.

In addition, students learn French as a third language. The purpose of the third language is to expose students to a language and culture of another country. Learning takes place through songs, music, theatrical plays, and the arts.

Research indicates that students who attend a dual-language program for at least 5 to 6 years become better problem-solvers, are more creative than monolingual students, and will be better prepared to contribute to the global economy of the 21st century.

Mission

Cameron Elementary will ensure high levels of learning in English and Spanish in order to cultivate bilingual and biliterate students who contribute to a multicultural, diverse, global society.

Vision

Cameron Elementary will become the premier two-way dual language campus in Texas.
