Dual Language Immersion Program
Trost's mission statement, "Students at Trost will become lifelong learners who are prepared to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing technological, and culturally diverse global community" exemplifies the goals of the Dual Immersion Instruction (DLI) program.
The process begins each May with Trost's kindergarten round-up, where parents have the opportunity to apply for participation in the program. A lottery will determine placement in the DLI kindergarten classroom.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
Began in the 2005-06 school year
Taught by certified, bilingual staff
