Bishop Elementary has a multi-age learning environment utilizing the High/Scope model of curriculum delivery. At Bishop, different aged students are combined into the same classrooms which are divided into grade-level houses; Lower (K-1), Middle (2-3), and Upper (4-5). Students have the opportunity to mentor younger students and be mentored by older students.

The High/Scope model of instruction focuses on self-directed learning and responsibility. The daily schedule is designed to accommodate individual needs and interests.


Students in Spanish Immersion are taught the identical curriculum, however, the classroom language is Spanish. English is introduced later, allowing students to leave elementary school at grade level in two

Lincoln’s Spanish Immersion program is the only program of its kind in Washtenaw County and one of the few language immersion programs in Michigan. It is housed in Bishop Elementary and utilizes the High/Scope model of curriculum delivery.
