What is Dual Language Immersion (DLI)?

DUAL Language Immersion is an academic program that is taught in two languages. YHALE will offer a Korean-English Immersion program and a Mandarin English Immersion program. Using a 50/50 model, half of a student’s instruction time is in English and half is in a target foreign language.

What are benefits of dual language immersion?

DLI students typically develop greater cognitive flexibility demonstrating increased attention and memory, superior problem-solving skills as well as an enhanced understanding of their primary language.

The ancients see me not, nor I, the ancients, Though I see the ancients not, the Way they trod is before me, Their Way before me, can I but follow.

State-Wide School Zone

YHALE has a State-Wide School Zone! This means that any child who lives anywhere in the State of Georgia may enroll at YHALE (If they are the appropriate age).

What is a Charter School?

Charter schools are public schools of choice that offer unique opportunities not available in traditional public schools. Charter schools have certain flexibilities in order to achieve their unique objectives but must achieve higher student performance than the average public school.
