Dual Language

Location: Frank Wagner Elementary School

The Frank Wagner Elementary Dual Language Program is a unique enrichment opportunity for elementary students (K-5) to think, read, write, and communicate naturally in English and Spanish. We are the only school district in Snohomish County that offers a dual language program. ¡Somos Bilingũes! We are Bilingual!


Monroe School District Dual Language students will develop a high academic and linguistic proficiency in two languages by participating in a rigorous academic program that enhances the development of bilingualism, biculturalism and biliteracy so that students will graduate ready for college, career and life in a globally competitive economy.

Commitment to the Program

Parents with a school-aged eligible child must attend an informational meeting, usually held in February, to better understand the program components and requirements. Participation in the dual language program requires parents to commit student participation through the fifth grade in order to develop bilingualism. In addition, parents attend regularly scheduled parent education workshops on dual language programs, encouraging your children's appreciation for language and literacy development in two languages.


Parents must complete and submit the kindergarten registration application to Frank Wagner Elementary in the spring for the upcoming school year. If applications exceed openings, a drawing will be held and applicants not selected will be placed on a wait list.
