Dual language is a two-way, dual immersion program for grades K–5 that began at Caldwell in 2010–2011 and is currently in its ninth year of implementation. The two-way immersion model combines students from two language groups while providing instruction in both languages.

The K-5 dual language classes are comprised of approximately one-half native English speakers and one-half native Spanish speakers, and students learn the academic curriculum through both languages simultaneously. In this 50-50 model, students serve as language models for each other while accelerating their learning.

The primary goal of dual language is to allow students to realize the full benefits of bilingualism, which include enhanced cognitive ability, increased academic achievement, heightened multicultural appreciation and understand and a competitive edge in the increasingly global society of the 21st century.
