Schools with Bilingual Education Models

Albuquerque Public Schools serves approximately 12,000 students in schools with bilingual education programs.

The goal is to graduate students who are proficient in English and their home language in all four modalities of listening, speaking, reading and writing. They receive daily instruction in English, their home language (where available), and the cultures of New Mexico.

Schools with bilingual education programs submit an application to the State Department of Education each spring for implementation in the new academic year. In New Mexico, an English Plus State, Hispanic students comprise the largest population of students in bilingual education.  Navajo – English bilingual education programs are also available.

For more info regarding bilingual program models at these schools contact your LCE Instructional Manager at 881-9429.
