This article addresses the challenges of integrating Spanish-speaking students into English-speaking school districts and presents solutions to ensure high-quality education for all students. This One Nation Indivisible story features a Utah elementary school that has successfully implemented two-way language immersion programs to integrate recent immigrants.  At Heber Valley Elementary, the school has instituted two-way immersion programs that bring together English speakers and native Spanish speakers.

Two-Way Immersion programs are represented as a path toward increased integration and community cohesion during periods of rapid demographic change. Two-Way immersion is also credited with fostering a bilingual workforce, attracting business and revenue by allowing businesses to compete in an international economy.
