Lily B. Dual Language Enrichment
In 2013, Lily B. Clayton was fortunate to become one of 2 elementary schools in Fort Worth to be designated a 2-way Dual Language Enrichment School. The program started in Kindergarten of 2013 and will continue up through all grade levels with that Kindergarten class. All incoming Kindergarten students may apply to be in the program. There are 2 Dual Language classes per Kindergarten grade out of the 4 Kindergarten classes. Therefore, it's a lottery system to get in. By 2nd grade, children in these classes will be fluent in both English and Spanish.
