Vietnamese l English

Klein ISD’s Vietnamese Bilingual Pathway is a biliteracy program that promotes language development through literacy in the core areas of Math, Reading, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies. Beginning in Kindergarten and continuing through Fifth Grade, all core subjects (Math, Reading, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies) are taught 50% in Vietnamese and 50% in English.

The Goal of the Vietnamese Bilingual Pathway is to help students become bilingual and biliterate in a culturally responsive environment; while promoting high academic achievement. This pathway will provide an opportunity for students to exemplify Profile of a Learner and Profile of a Leader. Ultimately, it will prepare them to work in a global community.
