    Our Mission

    We support English Language Learners (ELL) in achieving academic and social success in our schools and embracing the culture of our community while preserving their own culture, language and identity.

     

    Core Beliefs

    • We believe the entire school community is responsible for the success of English Language Learners.  
    • We believe the diversity of student languages and cultures are an asset to our school community.
    • We believe every student is entitled to quality instruction that gives them access to the concepts and content that are necessary for high school graduation. 

Becoming an ELL Volunteer

  • Observation/Interview Requests

    Many University students or TESOL/TEFL candidates need observation hours or interviews from ELL staff in order to complete their program requirements. We are very happy to accommodate and are excited to see a new generation of teachers who are familiar with English Language Learning! 

    Due to the privacy of our students and the quantity of requests for observation/interviews, we now require specific information before moving forward on any requests. Thank you for your understanding.
