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 Dual Language Immersion Program in Spanish and our Spanish Language Development Program. 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.
This will be an exciting and enriching new year in a family-oriented school environment. Our vision is “Excellence for All” because we believe that all of our student ambassadors can achieve high levels of success. We boast about serving a sound education to approximately 840 students in grades K-8.

Spanish Language Development Program
Our Spanish Language Development Program provides the day’s instruction in English, with a regular period of Spanish instruction for enrichment. Spanish will be taken as a class during Academic Arts. This program is available for students entering Kindergarten through 8th grade.

Dos en Uno Dual Language Immersion Program
Incoming kindergarten students are also eligible to apply for the Dos en Uno program. An informational session on the ‘Dos en Uno’ program will be virtual Wednesday, February 22, 2023 at 7:00 PM. REGISTER FOR THE INFORMATIONAL SESSION HERE. 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 in Kindergarten and Grade 1 and gradually increasing English instruction in Grade 2.
