About Oakland SOL
Oakland SOL’s Spanish/English immersion model is designed to support students to enter this pathway in 6th grade, so that all students have access to the cognitive, academic, and socio-cultural benefits of bilingualism.
At SOL, students investigate globally and locally relevant issues that promote deep thinking, inquiry, and the use of language in an authentic setting. Students will set learning goals across the ABCS: Academics, Bilingualism, Cultural Humility, and Social Emotional Literacy. These goals will be supported through a daily advisory period as well as a double literacy block in English and Spanish. Our innovative model supports students to develop increased agency over their learning in academic content areas, language, cultural identity, and social-emotional skills.
