Inspired by Our Children, Dual-Language and The Arts

John C. Daniels Interdistrict Magnet School of International Communication is the first school in New Haven to use a dual language model of instruction enhanced by technology and infused with the arts.

All students in grades K-4 receive all instruction in both English and Spanish; ALL subject areas are taught in each language 50% of the time with a dual language 50/50 model. Students move to a world language model in grades 5 through 8, taking Spanish or Mandarin Chinese. 

The circle logos appearing on this page represent our four curriculum themes which students study throughout the year.
