Spanish Immersion at Jenison High School has much more flexibility and choice to accommodate student schedules. In order to maintain language proficiency and continuing growing as a Spanish speaker, it is recommended that immersion students take on 2 hours of immersion courses. To remain part of the immersion program, students should aim to take and pass one Spanish Immersion class during their freshman, sophomore, and junior years.
A 9th grade student who wishes to take on every Spanish Immersion opportunity will be enrolled in Spanish Immersion English Language 9, Spanish Immersion United States History, and a Spanish Language course (placed based on a student's AAPPL test results).
A 10th grade student who wishes to take every Spanish Immersion offering will be enrolled in Spanish Immersion English Language 10, Spanish Immersion World History, and a Spanish Language course (continuing in the track the student began as a freshman).
An 11th or 12th grade student who wishes to take every Spanish Immersion offering will enroll in Spanish Immersion English 11/12. Another option for 11th and 12th graders is Spanish in the Community, a one semester, internship-based class which aims to provide students with authentic experiences to use their Spanish. The student may also take a Spanish Language course (continuing in the track the student began as a freshman, this could mean taking a GVSU course.)
