ESL/Bilingual


East Haven Public School District sees the uniqueness of each student and values the diversity found within our community.  We believe that every learner deserves a meaningful social and academic experience that motivates active participation, community involvement, and risk taking.

We recognize that: 
  • The acquisition of a second language is a challenging and complex process
  • It is important to validate each student's culture to promote self esteem 
With this in mind, our program reflects best practices in the field of second language acquisition, supports the teaching of Connecticut English Learner Proficiency (CELP) Standards, and is provided by well trained teachers. We offer instruction that builds upon students' background knowledge to prepare them for success in their mainstream classes and into the future.
