WELCOME TO DIAS
By Principal Mary Pritchard
As a mother of two, both of my daughters have attended dual immersion programs in the district. The oldest attended Los Padres Elementary in Salinas and the youngest is attending Lincoln Elementary. I can't tell you how happy I am that we made the decision to send our children through the district's program. It has been a life-changing experience for them.
Last summer, we made big changes to the existing Boronda Elementary school and are working hard to create a campus that supports the school’s programs and fosters thinking, creating, inventing, exploring, reading, discovering, sharing, innovating, and so much more! We hired some very talented teachers and I look forward to working with them! In the meantime, please check back to our website often and "like" our Facebook page to stay posted on announcements, events and much more.
"I'm dedicated to making the Dual Immersion Academy of Salinas an exceptional program with excellent opportunities for our children."
As the fourth school in the Salinas City Elementary School District to offer dual immersion — and the first magnet school in the Salinas Valley devoted entirely to this innovative program — DIAS is dedicated to high academic achievement and creating a bilingual, bi-literate and bicultural community. Please explore our website to learn more about the benefits of dual immersion and for more detailed information about this innovative program and how you can get involved. You can also fill out our contact form to get emails and stay posted for updates and opportunities to get involved. We hope to see you this fall at DIAS!
