John Daniels School of International Communication was the first school in New Haven to use a Dual Language model of instruction. All students K-8 learn in English and Spanish daily. Our challenging curriculum and emphasis on diversity prepares our students to be life-long learners in our increasingly multicultural world.
Through the incorporation of elements of International Communication in all subject areas, John C. Daniels School of International Communication aims to expand students’ knowledge about the world’s diverse countries, people and languages so that they are equipped and empowered to communicate with each other and across cultures.
