ENGLISH AS AN ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE
Meeting unique learning needs
Our English as an Additional Language (EAL) program is designed to provide academic instruction and support for non-native English speakers.
EAL IN LOWER SCHOOL
Our Lower School program supports English language development in the context of our English learners’ school day. Our program follows research and evidence-based best practices in academic language acquisition. It is guided by WIDA’s English Language Development Standards and is aligned with IB PYP philosophies.
EAL IN UPPER SCHOOL
The Upper School program first concentrates on equipping students with the vocabulary and structures for meeting immediate school needs. As students gain confidence, they move onto broader themes designed to develop speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills to a level that will enable them to participate effectively in all regular classroom lessons including English Language and Literature.
