    Welcome to the English Language Learners (ELL) Department!

    Bienvenido al Departamento Inglés como una Segunda Lengua (ELL)


    ELL is a program of studies for students whose first language is not standard American English, and whose English language proficiency is at a level where they may temporarily need extra support for success in the mainstream classroom.  Students take English classes, as well as math, science, social studies and reading.  Heritage ELL teachers are dedicated to creating a warm and nurturing environment for our students, as well as resources and encouragement for students, parents, and content teachers.
