Principal's Page

Hello, my name is Dr. Sylvia Martinez, I am the principal of La Casita Elementary, a Dual Language Magnet School.  Our Dual Language Program is a strong academic program that focuses on development of literacy in two languages (English and Spanish).  Native English speakers and non-native English speakers participate and are integrated in the same classroom.  Instruction in all content areas is initially presented 90% in Spanish and 10% in English at the Kindergarten level.  English will be phased in until the amount of English instruction is equal to that of Spanish (this will occur in upper grades).

The instruction is as follows:

Kinder 90% Spanish/ 10% English
1st Grade 80% Spanish/ 20% English
2nd Grade 70% Spanish/ 30% English
3rd Grade 60% Spanish/ 40% English
4th Grade 50% Spanish/ 50% English
5th Grade 50% Spanish/ 50% English
6th Grade 50% Spanish/ 50% English

We are proud to offer all students in the Clovis community the opportunity to learn Spanish as well as assisting all students to achieve academically in English.  It is our goal to provide an educational environment that best meets the needs of every child, as well as an atmosphere, which promotes the six pillars of character (Trustworthiness, Caring, Fairness, Respect, Responsibility, and Citizenship).

If you have any questions or are interested in La Casita’s Dual Language Program, please feel free to contact me:
