High School ELL Program Overview

Grades 9-12

Students that are eligible for ELL services will attend their neighborhood High School; Edmonds Woodway High School, Mountlake Terrace High School, Lynnwood High School or Meadowdale High School. All ELL programs include an ELL class specifically designed to develop English Proficiency skills. Students are enrolled in ELL classes based on the Language Level determined by the WELPA. In addition to the ELL classes students participate in general education courses which include both subject matter classes (science, history, e.g.) and electives classes. Subject matter classes may be comprised solely of English Language Learners or comprised of both native English speakers and English Language Learners. All classes use the district model of Sheltered Instruction to support the diverse language needs of English Language Learners. Please contact your student’s school for more information on classes offered specifically for ELL.
