English As A New Language

The purpose of this program is to address the needs of our English Language Learners (ELL) by providing an English as a New Language (ENL) program within the Adventures in Learning after school program.   Many of our students are American citizens, born in the US, but only begin speaking English when they enter school, and have had no exposure to the language up to that point.  The Adventures in Learning after school program’s student body is 61% Spanish-speaking. We have included in our teaching staff an ENL teacher to give individual instruction to the newest language learners in order to accelerate their language proficiency.
