English Learner students in middle school receive direct language support in EL classes that focus on building a student's academic vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing skills. These classes are taught by certificated EL teachers. Beginner and Advanced Beginner students are typically in EL classes for two or three periods a day, while Intermediate students are in EL classes one period a day.
The rest of the day students are integrated into the regular math, science, social studies, and elective classes. Their progress in those classes is monitored by the EL teacher, and the math, science, social studies and elective class teachers receive support in working with EL students from the EL teachers.
