About This School

Dual Immersion Academy is located in Salt Lake City, UT and is in Duel Immersion Academy School District. It is a charter school that serves 439 students in grades K-7.

Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Dual Immersion Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

In 2011, Dual Immersion Academy had 20 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Utah average is 23 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Before sending your kids to this all spanish school, make sure and check their test scores. They are on the very bottom of the list for the charter schools in Utah! The teachers use 90% spanish! The children who go here can barely write in English! There is a reason they are failing all state test scores. The program does not work. It is setting your child up for failure if you send them to this school.

If you would like your kids to be bilingual English/Spanish, this is the school, because all the subjects are taught in both languages. My kids are not only able to speak, but also read and write in English/Spanish.

I have 3 of my children at DIA and I am amazed at the quality of education they are recieving from very qualified teachers.  I'm excited about the improvements I've seen this year.  We have a lot of parents volunteering their time during the day and for school projects. We even have a very successful garden education program with a beautiful vegetable garden out back.  
I agree that there are always improvements to be made but thats where the parents have to step in.  If you aren't at your children's school making it better, you have no right to complain.

The model 90/10 when is well managed has more pros than cons, if a parent is complaining because his child was choked is a shame, but let's be honest this could have happened in any school in the world.

I would invite the parents to take a tour and doble check how things work at DIA.

Let's not just overreact in anger!!!

Dual Immersion Academy is a joke. The children are left unsupervised on the playground and my daughter was choked by another student. Nothing was done about it either. They have no discipline system! Also, academically now that the school is 90% Spanish and 10% English speaking, children are very behind. The Spanish children aren't learning any English and the English children have no writing skills. The best thing I did was to pull my child from this joke of a school.
