In Northside, we embrace diversity and provide a high quality learning experience for all. We build upon the linguistic, academic, and cognitive experiences of students and families to develop students' mastery of the English language. Our goal is to achieve academic excellence, and honor multiculturalism through meaningful learning experiences that inspire students' confidence, curiosity, and capability. 

Dual Language Immersion Two-way Bilingual Program

The NISD Dual Language Immersion Two-way Bilingual Program model is research-based. The dual language model seeks to create bilingual, biliterate, and bicultural students by developing their academic proficiency in English and Spanish. Our goal is to achieve academic excellence, and honor multiculturalism through meaningful learning experiences that inspire students' confidence, curiosity, and capability.

Transitional Bilingual Academic Program

The NISD Transitional Bilingual Academic Program model teaches the state required Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). The research-based program uses the child’s primary language for instruction as he or she learns the second language (English) and achieves academic success. Our goal is to achieve academic excellence, and honor multiculturalism through meaningful learning experiences that inspire students' confidence, curiosity, and capability.
