We strive to prepare and empower all Multilingual/English Learner (ML/EL) students to succeed linguistically, academically, and social-emotionally by partnering with families and school staff to...  

  • foster language development in Speaking, Listening, Reading, and Writing to help MLs thrive academically and socially.
  • support access to grade-level curriculum.
  • cultivate a sense of belonging by welcoming families and supporting continued engagement in our school communities.
  • value and honor the cultural assets of multilingual students and families. 
  • identify and dismantle barriers to success.
