Interested in SDLP for your child?

I have 3 children at PS 145 and the dual language programs are fantastic. I couldn't be more pleased with the level of education, attention and care given to my kids.

About the Program


The Spanish Dual Language Program is designed for both English language learners and native English speakers. The program educates students belonging to each of these groups through a curriculum designed to foster an appreciation for one's own culture and the cultures of others. Our curriculum, like the rest of our school, is multimedia-themed and project based. Our SDLP runs from K-5. We use the Alternate Day Model and predetermine which days the target language will be spoken.
