ELL classes at Washington are aimed at students who come from a multilingual background. We have a variety of different languages spoken by students in our school. The ELL classes are designed to help students acquire the academic language skills that they need to be successful in their classrooms.
Our ELL students come from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. Some are newcomers to the U.S. with no English language skills. Others have been in the U.S. for years and have good day to day communication skills, but may still need help learning the intricacies of written and academic English. The ELL program works with all of these students.
