Worthwhile School

Darwin is a great place with dedicated teachers and administrators. I used to work at this school and I witnessed first hand the hard work and dedication from all the staff, including administrators. I have been at different schools during my career and Mr. Segovia is by far one of the most involved and hard working principals I’ve met. From the beginning he has worked tirelessly to bring positive programs to Darwin such as PBIS and The Leader in Me. These programs have proven to promote the wellbeing of our students.

Bilingualism Matters

The Dual Language Program at Darwin Elementary offers students in Pre-K through 8th grade the opportunity to become bilingual, bicultural, and biliterate. In Dual Language classrooms, instructional time and academic content is provided in both English and Spanish using a 80/20 model. Our program follows the mandated Illinois State Learning Standards infusing rich literacy through content areas, modern technology, and critical thinking.

Program Goals

  • Develop bilingualism (English and Spanish), biliteracy, and biculturism
  • Achieve above grade level academic performance in Spanish and English, meeting or exceeding district guidelines
  • Demonstrate and understanding and appreciation of other cultures
  • Develop skills that will enable our students to function successfully in an increasing global society

Parental Component

  • Commitment to the program and to their child’s linguistic, academic, and sociocultural development
  • Read to their child at home and assist him/her with homework
  • Attend school functions
  • Encourage good behavior and student attendance
