Part of the mission of the Corvallis Public School District is support our students becoming engaged citizens and future leaders as members of our world community.
The dual language immersion program at Linus Pauling Middle School has been awarded the designation of being an International Spanish Academy. We now have a special relationship with the Ministry of Education of Spain which will provide our school with opportunities beyond our current abilities. Our school has been selected from many applicants in the United State and Canada to receive this distinction.
What is an International Spanish Academy (ISA)? ISA schools are schools with a strong emphasis on the Spanish language and all the Spanish cultures of the world. Students in ISA schools build their Spanish language skills so that a percentage of their instruction is delivered in Spanish.
Some opportunities that come with this distinction:
· Spanish visiting teachers
· Spanish language and culture lessons
· Spanish resource center
· Presence in national, regional, and state-level conferences for teaching and learning of foreign languages
We are honored to be an ISA and we look forward to providing interesting new learning opportunities for our students.
