Special Education

ENL -English as a New Language (ENL, ESL, ELL)

As a parent, you play a key role in determining the program that best matches the academic and cultural needs of your child. We look forward to working with you to make those decisions and appreciate your participation in your child’s education. Feel free to ask parent coordinators and staff members about ELL programs.
