Program Offerings

Our school offers two different types of program to address the needs of English Language Learners.

English as a New Language(ENL) Program

English as a New Language (ENL) emphasizes English language acquisition. In an ENL program, language arts and content-area instruction are taught in English using specific ENL instructional strategies. Students receive core content area and English language development instruction, including the use of the home/primary language as support and appropriate English Language Learner (ELL). ELL instructional supports to enrich comprehension. 

Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE) Program

Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE) programs offer students of the same home language the opportunity to learn to speak, understand, read, and write in English while continuing to learn academic content in their home language. The students’ home language is used to help them progress academically in all content areas while they acquire English. The goal of a TBE Program is to provide students with the opportunity to transition to a monolingual English classroom setting without additional supports once they reach proficiency.
