On Wednesday, May 17, 2023, Sage Creek Elementary School celebrated the first class of Chinese Immersion students to graduate from high school in Nebo School District. Twenty-eight students were present to celebrate their great accomplishment of being the first students to graduate in the program.

Program History
Former Principal, Natalie Call, stated that many hours of research went into choosing to become a Dual Language Immersion school. She was impressed with the research that showed dual language immersion changed the way students learn.

Parent Endorsement
Melanie Thorpe, a parent of a graduating senior, shared that her daughter struggled with ADHD and dyslexia and was held back for one year. They opted into the program, and now her daughter is graduating with a  4.0 GPA.
