Why DiLoreto Elementary and Middle School?
DiLoreto has a diverse and multicultural history that promotes academic learning in both Spanish and English for our learners. We have two programs that run at Diloreto: our Spanish Language Development Program and Dos en Uno, CSDNB’s Dual Language Immersion program in Spanish. The goal of both of these programs is to promote cultural diversity, equity, and multilingualism. Both programs celebrate the idea that knowing a second language is an asset in many ways.

There are TWO Different Language Programs at DiLoreto!
The DiLoreto Elementary and Middle School school-wide lottery and the Dos en Uno Dual Language Program lottery are both scheduled to take place in early 2024. The DiLoreto Elementary and Middle School school-wide lottery and the Dos en Uno Dual Language Program lottery are:
*Please note, incoming kindergarten students are eligible for BOTH programs.

1. DiLoreto Elementary and Middle School will launch its annual lottery application process this spring for all students entering kindergarten through 8th grade. All eligible students districtwide will be automatically entered into the lottery. This process is new for the 2024-25 school year. No parent/guardian action will be required. Accepted families will be identified and contacted in May 2024.

Accepted students will be invited to attend DiLoreto Elementary and Middle School and participate in the school’s Spanish Language Development Program. The Spanish Language Development Program provides the day’s instruction in English, with a regular period of Spanish as a World Language class during Academic Arts.

2. The Dos en Uno Dual Language Program will launch its annual lottery application process this month. Incoming kindergarten students are eligible to apply starting Friday, January 19, 2024. Interested parents/guardians MUST apply their students for this program.

The Dos en Uno program provides students with intensive academic instruction in Spanish and English. The goal for these students is to be fluent in reading, writing, and speaking in both languages by being immersed in Spanish language learning starting in Kindergarten and eventually working towards a 50:50 model from Grade 2-Grade 5.

Dos en Uno Mandatory Informational Sessions: There will be two virtual informational sessions held for the parents/guardians of Kindergarten Dos en Uno applicants. All parents/guardians of Kindergarten Dos en Uno applicants MUST attend one of the following sessions to be eligible to apply:
