Dual Language Program
The Dual Language program at Tyler began in the fall of 2005 and now runs from preschool through the 5th grade. Dual Language students develop
flexibility in thinking through problem solving, conceptualizing, and reasoning in two languages. Students at all levels will:
- Become bilingual and bi-literate;
- Reach high academic standards; and
- Gain cultural awareness.
Students in Tyler’s city-wide Special Education program, and in particular, its Autism program, are challenged to apply their skills in the classroom and to develop their full potential to succeed in an academic environment, and in daily life at home and in the community.
The Tyler Elementary Creative Arts Learning opportunity gives students exposure to robust interactions with the fine arts. Creative arts classrooms infuse the arts in the delivery of the academic and socio-emotional curriculum to allow students multiple outlets for creativity and development. The highlight of the Creative Arts Learning Opportunity is the Resident Artist Program. Creative Arts classrooms are paired with a resident artist mentor who exposes the class to their art form. The classroom teacher and artist collaborate to infuse the curriculum with the curriculum. Each semester culminates with the Tyler Mosaic, a showcase of the work
created by the classes and resident artists.
