Gus Garcia Young Men's Leadership Academy

Dual Language

New for the 2017/18 academic year, Gus Garcia YMLA is offering dual-language education, providing an opportunity for students from a dual-language elementary school or those with fluency in both English and Spanish to continue developing their language skills.

Research shows that students who are bilingual, biliterate and bicultural continue on a path of high achievement and graduate ready for college, career and life in a globally competitive economy.

Why multilingual people have healthier, more engaged brains  Educators often focus on the language skills students who are still learning English lack, but bilingualism is a huge neuro-strength. The ability to speak more than one language means a strong, healthy and complex brain.
