Mission Statement

Every English Language Learner will acquire skills in their native language to facilitate English proficiency in four domains: listening, writing, speaking and reading. These skills will allow them to actively participate in socially and academically challenging educational opportunities.

Ultimately, students will utilize their academic experiences to achieve bilingualism and bi-literacy. We want to support English Language Learners and their families by working together to ensure that each student develops not only their academic skills, but their cognitive and linguistic skills as well. It is our goal to promote academic success by respecting linguistic diversity and celebrating the unique needs of our learning community.
