Franklin’s Dual Language Academy Magnet?

It is strongly recommended that 6th, 7th and 8th grade middle school students:

  • have been previously enrolled in an elementary Spanish Dual Language Program,
  • are Spanish speaking English Learners or
  • can show Spanish proficiency on Franklin Dual Language Academy's entrance assessment prior to enrollment.

FDLA's Goals:

  • Language proficiency in both English & Spanish

  • Academic achievement across content areas

  • Attainment of 8th grade Biliteracy certificate

  • Attainment of Biliteracy Seal on students' high school diplomas

  • Successful preparation for Advanced Placement exams in Spanish

Dual Language programs have been proven to:

  • Increase overall academic achievement 

  • Challenge students to think more creatively & analytically

  • Improve student performance (versus monolingual students) on tasks that call for divergent thinking, pattern recognition, and problem solving​​​​​​

After school clubs specific to the middle school program:

  • Junior Panther Cheer  
  • Los Mini-Nerds Robotics Club
  • UCLA Blue & Gold Scholars Program
  • FDLA Leadership

 

​​​​Safety:

Middle-school students have

  • a uniform that clearly distinguishes them from our high school students,
  • their own separate entrance on Ave 56 with a pedestrian gate and a school administrator present to welcome them each morning and send them home each day,
  • their own campus in the upper section of the school site, separate from high school classrooms, and 
  • a separate lunch area as well as their own gym and changing areas.
