Another of ISS-ULink school, NCIC-Immersion provides a kindergarten to grade 8 under a dual language education model. As a research-based model, the school believes dual language education can foster bilingualism and bi-literacy, enhancing students’ awareness of cultural diversity while leveling up academic achievement. Students in the dual language immersion programs can retain language proficiency in both languages when their primary language and secondary language are treated with equitable status. Language becomes the tool students will use to communicate their thoughts to different audiences, using different language for different purpose. NCIC-Immersion adopts the US-Common Core curriculum and is seeking accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
