Welcome to Foster Elementary

Foster Elementary School serves traditional students as well as students wanting to become biliterate in English and Spanish. Students and parents may choose to enroll in a traditional classroom or a Dual Immersion classroom. All classrooms follow the district's guaranteed, viable curriculum and provide learning opportunities supported by research-based practices to address the learning needs of all students.

Dual Immersion at Foster Elementary

The Dual Language program at Foster provides a unique opportunity that brings together Spanish and English speaking students in an effort to develop full bilingualism in both groups. These students will have the opportunity to learn a second language without compromising their first language

This program:

  • Develops children who will be more competitive in the global economy and more collaborative in our multicultural society
  • Takes advantage of the optimal window of learning a second language during the primary years
  • Supports families with a cultural, ethnic, or multilingual heritage
  • Produces critical thinkers and problem solvers who can use a communication-rich approach to succeed in the information age
  • Nurtures understanding and cooperation of the different cultures living side by side in Jefferson County
  • Gives students an edge in high school, college, and the workplace
  • Provides a full-day, free kindergarten
