Every English Learner, Always, in ALL Ways!


We are committed to meeting the individual needs of our English Learners by ensuring equitable access to engaging, high-quality, and rigorous instruction. We empower our Els to be global citizens who are linguistically, socially, and culturally equipped for success in school and beyond.

The ESL program provides:

  • Sheltered, collaborative, and direct instruction to English learners
  • Monitoring of student progress in English language development and academic success
  • Professional development to ESL, mainstream teachers, school counselors and administrators for working with English learners
  • Individualized support and consultation to school personnel regarding English learners
  • Communication, collaboration, and dissemination of information to English learner stakeholders
  • Resources and opportunities for community and school engagement for parents who are English leaners
  • Outreach programs to empower minority parents to become decision makers and advocates for their children’s education
