Spanish Immersion Program at West High
West High School is the continuation of the Spanish two-way immersion program from Government Hill Elementary and Romig Middle schools. The two-way immersion program is the only one of its kind in Alaska. Students in this program are both English speakers and native Spanish-speakers who together become bilingual and biliterate in both Spanish and English. Native Spanish speaking students and heritage Spanish speakers with literacy skills in Spanish are encouraged to enroll in this Spanish two-way immersion program. In the high school program there are four-year upper level courses designed to increase students’ language skills while learning through content. Spanish courses include Vistas Juveniles del Mundo Hispano, Perspectivas Literarias, Estudios Latinoamericanos, and Advanced Placement (both language and literature.) High school immersion courses are designed to be rigorous and challenging for students while preparing them for upper division university coursework.
