Colegio Ingles Torreon is a private catholic institution that offers a bilingual program. In their Elementary Program, they deal with a Mexican teacher in each class who is in charge of the self contained Spanish program for two groups and a native English speaker teacher who teaches the English program and speaks only English during class time to the same two groups. Therefore their students have a Spanish teacher one half of the school day and an English teacher the other half. Elementary goes from grade 1 to grade 6.
