Oyster-Adams Bilingual School

For more than 40 years, Oyster-Adams Bilingual School has served as a model for dual-language education in DC and nationwide. Children learn 50% of their academic content in English and 50% in Spanish. While learning in a bilingual environment, our students develop their intellect and academic knowledge in two languages. The cultural diversity within Oyster-Adams forges long-lasting friendships among students and families from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds, nationalities, and socio-economic levels.
