"Language exerts hidden power, like a moon on the tides."
--Rita Mae Brown
Our Vision is to accelerate the process of English language acquisition, equipping students with the skills and competency of native speakers.
Our Mission is to provide a district-wide, systematic, coherent English language development program that moves students to reclassification in three years.
Areas of Emphasis
We believe that teaching English requires expert language teachers. As a district we are committed to refine our practices, provide focused time on English language development, and offer appropriate training to our staff to meet the needs of our English Learners. We believe that English learners, like other children, can quickly learn and master the requirements of native fluency if the instructional program is systematic and specific.
