Welcome to EL!
Welcome to the Guilford EL Program! Our ELs (English Learners) represent a variety of cultures and a wide range of educational and language experiences. To meet the needs of these English Learners, the EL instructional program in Loudoun County Public Schools is a multi-faceted, structured English language immersion program. It is designed to promote English language acquisition for non-native English speakers, with the goal of ensuring academic and social success now and in the future.
At Guilford, our EL program offers small-group EL instruction that focuses specifically on increasing reading, writing, listening, and speaking proficiencies, as well as academic support within the general classroom. The EL team at Guilford is comprised of linguistically and culturally diverse, professional staff. We are committed to serving our students through customized instruction that supports the Virginia Standards of Learning, while helping our students increase their social and academic English proficiency.
