Albuquerque Public Schools serves approximately 10,000 students in schools with bilingual education programs.

Bilingual Education in New Mexico

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. Students receive daily instruction in English, their home language (where available), and the cultures of New Mexico.

About Bilingual Programs

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 and Zuni-English bilingual education programs are available. 
  • APS currently has Dual Language and Heritage Language Programs K-12.
