Dual Language is rolling into Year Six!

The 2019-2020 school year was the inaugural year for Wahluke School District's dual-language program with our first cohort of kindergarten students starting at Mattawa Elementary.

This school year the first cohort is moving up to fifth grade, completing our K-5 program. Next year we will be rolling up into Junior High!

With the reconfiguration, dual language will now be a strand across Mattawa Elementary (Kinder), Saddle Mountain Elementary (1-3rd) and Morris Schott Elementary (4-5th).
