Bilingual/Bicultural Approach

students and teaching in classBilingual Education is the foundation upon which all learning and teaching at Klemzig School is placed. As you walk through our school you will quickly come to understand that bilingual/bicultural education is far more than knowing how to understand and communicate in two languages.

Klemzig is a community school for families seeking a quality education within a bilingual experience. The confidence and connections students develop through bilingual education forms the foundation for learning success and equips them for a bright future. Researchers have shown that the bilingual brain can have better attention and task-switching abilities. The brain relies on executive functions as it switches between and tries to achieve a balance between the two languages. Bilingualism has been linked with better problem solving, working memory, visual-spatial skills and even creativity.
