We are dedicated to serving the needs of English Language Learners (ELLs)—students who speak a language

 other than English at home. The ELL department provides ELLs, former ELLs, immigrants, and their 

families with equal access to an excellent education, by providingprofessional development to teachers, staff, 

and leaders,promoting parental involvement, improving material resources, and creating targeted solutions.  

We create a rigorous learning environment that focuses on academic achievement, language development, 

and cross-cultural support.
