Our English Learners will have access to high quality learning and content level standards.


We respect the diverse cultural backgrounds of our English Learners, so teachers will create purposeful and intentional classroom experiences that reflect their students' diverse learning styles. Teachers will plan with a culturally proficient mindset, so that all English Learners will acquire language proficiency and critical thinking skills to be college, career, and life ready.
