Harts Bluff’s Dual Language Program
The Harts Bluff Independent School District’s Bilingual Education/ESL Programming supports language and cultural diversity. We believe each child comes to school with a set of unique experiences and skills that when shared with others, enrich the social, cultural, and educational environments of our classrooms, schools, and communities.
