Welcome to PS 153Q
Polish-English Dual Language Program
Maspeth Elementary PS 153 is excited to expand our Polish-English Dual Language Program. We will have a Pre-Kindergarten Class, Kindergarten and First Grade Dual Language Class.
Description of the Program:
Balanced Language Model (50/50 model), reflects the balance of the two languages.
Students receive half of their instruction in English and the other half in Polish.
Content instruction will be supportive of full bilingual proficiency for both native Polish speakers and fluent English speakers and will be taught in both English and Polish.
Educators integrate multiculturalism through read-aloud, songs, and arts & crafts activities in the classroom as well as through field trips and multicultural presentations outside of the classroom.
Maspeth Elementary School is committed to providing each student an exemplary educational experience promoting high expectations, inspiring a sense of social responsibility while supporting each student’s physical, social and emotional needs.
