The mission of the Bilingual & ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages) Program is to ensure the academic success of all English Learners (ELs).  The Bilingual & ESOL department collaborates with teachers and administrators to provide high-quality instructional programs designed to develop proficiency in English and support the native language, while meeting challenging state of Connecticut academic and content standards. Students with diverse language backgrounds who are learning English as a new language will be provided programs to enable them to:

  • Acquire skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing, through English language development (ELD), to allow full participation in the mainstream academic program; 

  • Achieve academic excellence in all content areas; 

  • Meet linguistic and content learning targets;

  • Develop high levels of proficiency and biliteracy in English and in Spanish in Dual Language programs; 

  • Demonstrate cross-cultural awareness and understanding
