  • Dual Language Logo

    The Hillsboro School District began its Spanish-English Dual Language program in 2002 to engage and support the increasingly diverse community we serve. In Hillsboro's dual language programs (also referred to as two-way immersion), students are exposed to the same curriculum as their peers while also having the opportunity to learn a second language. Cultures are explored while students work and learn together, preparing them for a successful future in the multicultural world in which we live.

    Dual language programs are offered at select elementary schools, at South Meadows Middle School, and culminating at Hillsboro High School, where students have an opportunity to receive the Seal of Biliteracy on their diploma.

The program has earned a reputation for rigorous assessment, giving IB Diploma holders access to the world's leading universities. The Diploma Program's grading system is criterion referenced: each student's performance is measured against well-defined levels of achievement consistent from one examination session to the next. The IBO has shown, over the course of 30 years, that students are well-prepared for university work.
