Aisd apple“Becker Elementary, the oldest elementary school in South Austin, is in the heart of the Bouldin Creek Neighborhood. It is one of only a small group of AISD Two-Way Dual Language (DL) schools…

Dual Language is an educational model in which both native English speakers and native Spanish speakers receive instruction together in both languages, which results in higher academic achievement, improved acquisition of English, the development of academic Spanish, and cross-cultural understanding for all the students. Language learning takes place primarily through the instruction of academic subject matter. Linguistic proficiency in both languages is developed as students increase their knowledge of subject matter through performing academic tasks.”

Becker Elementary accepts transfers.

Amazing little school with qualified teachers, awesome learning opportunities with the chicken coop and green garden all with the dual language program. I've been excited to see the progress that my daughter has made In the last 2 years in reading and writing Spanish. The community of parents also work very hard together to help support the DL program. Overall great school.

We love Becker!!! Becker is centrally located and has a ton of heart and soul! Becker is committed to the dual language program and has taken the lead to train all of its teachers in an interactive, biliteracy approach to learning. Becker has also worked hard to strengthen its programs and to integrate the arts and maker spaces in the classroom. Students at Becker get to tend their own garden plots at the amazing Green Garden Classroom and to counts chickens as friends at the Chicken Coop. Becker's community is very engaged and there are lots of opportunities for all families to be part of an amazing and diverse dual language school in South Austin.
