EL - English Language
EL Program Overview
EL is a program of instruction in the English language in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Our program is intended as an academic support program for those students who have learned a language other than English as their first language. The EL students participate in regular Hillcrest grade level classrooms for most of the day. They come to an EL classroom for 30 -60 minutes daily for specific, small group English language skill instruction.
The presence of an EL program at Hillcrest provides all students with an opportunity to learn alongside students from numerous cultures from around the world and around the block here in Bloomington! As we form global friendships and build bridges that cross-linguistic barrier, we can all be enriched.
