Unified School District

Thank you for your interest in SPUSD's Dual Language Immersion Program.  We are excited to offer a Spanish Dual Immersion program at Monterey Hills Elementary School and a Mandarin Dual Immersion program at Marengo Elementary School.  Both programs are offered to incoming Kindergarten students who reside in South Pasadena.  

Our annual Parent Information Meeting slide deck presentation and recording are available.

Dual Immersion Lottery will take place at 3:30 PM in the District Office Board Room Friday, April 16.  The meeting will be accessible to the public but attendance is not required.  Public participants must complete the Health Screening prior to admittance, must wear a mask, and must maintain social distancing while in the Board Room.  Parents will be notified of their DI lottery results between Friday afternoon and Monday morning.  Parents can also contact the school sites via phone starting on Monday morning for their results:

  • Spanish DI Program Results: Monterey Hills Elementary School - (626) 441-5860
  • Mandarin DI Program Results: Marengo Elementary School - (626) 441-5850
