The Corona-Norco Unified School District recognizes the importance of preparing students for the 21st
century and is proud to offer the Dual Language Immersion program at six elementary schools, two intermediate, and two high schools. This program affords students the opportunity to learn Spanish and English or Mandarin and English in a proficient manner. Students who participate in the Dual Language Immersion program from TK through 12th grade become biliterate and develop an appreciation for multiculturalism. The program also prepares students with the college and career readiness skills they need to compete in a globalized society.


The Spanish program reflects the 90:10 model where the instructional day consists of 90% Spanish and 10% English in Kindergarten, increasing to 50% English and 50% Spanish by fourth grade. At the secondary level, instruction consists of approximately 30% Spanish and 70% English. Students committed to the full TK – 12 DLI program, achieve the greatest benefit of participating in the Dual Language Immersion program.


Starting with the 2020-21 school year, Rondo Elementary will have a foreign language immersion program for native English speakers learning Mandarin.  The program will implement the 50:50 model in which 50% of the instructional day consists of English instruction and 50% is in Mandarin. The program is a K-6 program.
