Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cupertino Language Immersion Program is an alternative K-8 education program located at R.I. Meyerholz Elementary and Sam H. Lawson Middle School in the Cupertino Union School District. It is one of four alternative programs in the district where enrollment is decided by lottery. Starting in fall 2010, the middle school portion will move to Miller Middle School. Employing a two-way language immersion model, CLIP's goals are to develop biliteracy, enrich culturally and achieve academic proficiency that meet or exceed the district guidelines. Mandarin was chosen as the target language which did have some backlash. Starting in the 1998-1999 school year with a single Kindergarten class, CLIP's Mandarin Immersion Program has grown to expand through eighth grade in 2006. In 2007, the first class of immersion students graduated middle school.show more
