At Washington Irving Dual Language Academy, we believe that all students have the potential to develop into productive, high achieving global citizens. For this reason, we provide students with the most advanced comprehensive dual language experience that supports the development of highly proficient biliterate individuals with cognitive meta-linguistic skills.

The goal of the secondary dual language program is to continue to develop higher levels of academic language proficiency in Spanish and English simultaneously from Pre-K -12th. Students in 6th and 7th grades will take two core classes, an elective in Spanish, and the rest of their classes in English.

 Students eligible for the secondary dual language program:

  • Students coming from a dual language elementary program
  • Students proficient in Spanish and English not necessarily coming from a dual language elementary (Heritage Spanish speakers and ESL students)
  • Dual-language immersion school promoting English and Spanish
  • Form strong cognitive and academic skills through the development of bilingualism and biliteracy

San Antonio ISD is hosting virtual and in-person Parent Information Sessions every month! These are interactive, family conversations that help you understand what Choice Schools & Magnet Programs are and how to gain admission. We share important dates and deadlines, tips on how to apply, and resources to learn more. See dates, times, and locations of all District Info Sessions here.

  • Virtual Sessions: Join by tuning in to our live broadcast on the SAISD Choice Schools & Programs Facebook page. Parents will be able to post questions directly in the comments during the presentations, and we’ll answer in real time! Questions may also be sent ahead of time by direct message through the Facebook page, or by email to
  • In-Person Sessions: No sign-up is needed. These sessions take place at our neighborhood high schools, so parking is free. To make sure seating can remain socially distanced, we advise just 1 parent and 1 child per family attend each event. *Masks are required due to COVID-19 safety guidelines.
