Teachers in the PS 145 Russian Dual Language Program really know my child. Attention is given not only to her academic progress but also to her psycho-social development and becoming a part of the classroom community.

Our child is in the 1st grade and he loves both his teacher, Ms. Olga, and his classmates. RDLP provides an incredible learning environment as evidenced by our son's social, cultural and intellectual growth during his time at the school.

PS 145

 

PS 145 Dual Language Programs are designed for both English language learners and native English speakers. Our goal is to educate students in either of these groups towards language proficiency in addition to a greater appreciation of both their own culture and that of the newly introduced language.  The dual language curriculum, like the rest of our school, is multimedia-themed and project-based. Our SDLP runs from K-5 and our RDLP, now in its second year, runs from pre-k through 1st grade and will continue to expand.  The dual language programs use the Alternate Day Model with classes taught with full immersion in English alternating with Russian or Spanish depending upon the program. 

For example, they have taken the time to find out how she is adjusting to having a new sibling, and have made valuable suggestions to me on how to handle this family transition and continue to have a dialog with my child about the change. The other parents are also caring, frequently volunteer within the classroom further bolstering the community. I thought this would be a great environment for my daughter going in and so far, and my expectations have been greatly exceeded. This program continues to raise the bar for itself."
