English Language Learners (ELL)
English Language Learners in our district speak over 20 different languages. We believe our schools are enhanced by the presence of students who come from a variety of linguistic backgrounds. We seek to build on students' strengths with a program that allows them to access the curriculum and build English proficiency.
The purpose of the program is to teach English-as-a-second-language and other academic needs to students who come from homes in which a language other than English is spoken.
Our school has a paraprofessional, Mrs. King, who supports our ELL students, working under the direction of our ELL teacher, Leeza Zhykhovich.
