What happens at our Arts Integration Academy?

Arts integration is an approach to learning in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through art. Together with our campus Dual Language program, which provides students the opportunity to engage multi-language curriculum, students experience the creative process in a way that meets their own unique cultural, social, emotional and intellectual needs.

A list of projects from Bond 2018 that impact our campus can be found on schools Bond Webpage.

Dual Language Programs are those where students are taught literacy and content in two languages. The RRISD Dual Language Program goals are the same for both native English speakers and native Spanish speakers.

In the dual language program, the focus is to transfer language skills to develop bi-literacy and not to transition into one language instruction. In this way, all students become bi-literate, bi-cultural and bilingual.

At Wells Branch Elementary Arts Integration Academy we follow the 90/10 immersion program:

All students are instructed in Spanish in the primary grades and transition into Spanish and English in the later grades. Students in Pre-K and Kindergarten receive 90% of their daily instruction in Spanish and 10% in English. Each year, students will receive more instruction in English as the percentage of Spanish instruction time begins to decrease. By 4th and 5th grade students will receive 50% of their daily instruction in both English and Spanish.
