Russian in Bellevue 2If in the future you would like your kids to be biliterate both in Russian and English (speaking Russian at home is NOT a requirement!), please fill out and submit the form below. Russian in Bellevue’s new initiative to start a Dual Language Immersion program in Russian and English depends on you!

They are looking into a number of districts around Seattle now, and your support gives us more chances to succeed!

The necessary fields are marked with an asterisk (*). This information will help them to show the interest which exists in such a program in WA state. It will not be shared with any third parties but the district they are petitioning, and for any other reasons but to estimate future enrollment.
