Dual language immersion has been taking place at Batesville Primary and Intermediate schools since Batesville Community Schools received a state grant to begin a Chinese Mandarin program in 2016. According to the school district, research shows that kindergarten aged students have twice as many connections to their brain than an adult does making it easier for them to learn a new language.
