English Learners (EL) Department
EL is a program of studies for students whose first language is not standard American English, and who may need extra support for success in the mainstream classroom. Students take sheltered English, reading, math, science, and social studies, and transition into mainstream classes. Our goal is for students to become proficient in English in order to be independent members of their community. EL teachers are dedicated to providing a warm and nurturing environment for our students, as well as resources and encouragement for students, parents, and content teachers.
If you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher or the EL department chair, Mrs. Theresa Barthel.
