Magnet school

  • Beginning this year 2013-2014 FPG is a Magnet School

  • What does this mean for FPG?

Magnet School



  • Colegio Frank Porter Graham BilingüeDondeaseguramosquecadaestudiante sea bilingüe, alfabetizado en ambos idiomas, y desarrolleconciencia cultural.Frank Porter Graham Bilingüe SchoolWhere we ensure that all students are bilingual and biliterate and develop cultural awareness.



  • Eliminate the achievement gap for LEP students, Latino, African-American, and/or economically disadvantaged students

  • Provide the most effective and evidence-based practices to support Limited English Proficient (LEP) students

  • Advance student achievement for all Dual Language students

  • Create globally-minded and prepared students who work to solve real-world problems

  • Recognize, advocate and take action on issues for social justice.

  • Create a community comprised of students, staff, parents and community (and international) agencies and institutions that nurtures collaboration and each member feels ownership, valued and welcome.

Dual language program model

Dual Language Program Model:

  • Program is a two-way dual language model, with tracks of 90-10 and 50-50, meaning how much time is spent in Spanish-English instruction.   

  • Research supports two-way dual language models in that students tend to do better in academic achievement regardless of race, ethnicity or gender

  • Students provide language models for each other, thus raising the status of the minority language.

  • Instruction integrates all content and is delivered through a project-based learning approach.

  • Teachers plan and use intentional activities and strategies in the classroom that aid in comprehension of content while learning a language.

Global connections

Global Connections:

  • The school centers around its place in the world.  As with effective dual language pedagogy, the curriculum is integrated, providing students with experiences and connections among reading, writing, mathematics, science, social studies and health.  

  • As part of a global focus, the school has international connections, such as buddy schools around the world, international teachers and social justice projects.  

  • FPG may pursue certification as an International Bacculaureate School with a PYP (Primary Years Program) Program-IB is internationally recognized for elementary, middle and high school programs.  

Family and community partnerships

Family and Community Partnerships:

  • Community is an essential belief at FPG Bilingue. We plan to build partnerships with timely and purposeful communication using tools such as our website and Friday folders, home visits, strength-based parent-teacher conferences, and cultural family oriented activities.  

  • We welcome collaboration with families and community groups to develop a core of parent and community volunteers, in which all talents are welcomed.  This type of community will help us ensure a deeper cultural awareness and understanding of social justice.
