English Learner Program and Specialists

The English Learner Program serves a very diverse group of students. There are currently 2,090 EL students, which is about 11% of the total student population. These students speak more than 80 languages and dialects. Our largest groups are refugees or descendants of former refugees, migrants or settled migrants, and long-term medical visitors.

Our EL team’s goal is to collaborate and advocate to inspire, challenge, and empower English Learners as they develop their social and academic English language while maintaining their multicultural identities.
