English Language Learners Services

The Upper Arlington English Language Learners program gives English Language Learners customized instruction in the four areas of communication: reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
The mission of the Upper Arlington City Schools English Learners Program is to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to become independent learners and achieve academic success.
The goal of the EL Program is to prepare students to succeed in all areas of school and society through collaboration, structured support, and authentic language learning, while placing value on the native language and culture of all EL students. 
The EL Program aims to:
  • Provide best-practice instructional strategies that are designed to meet the needs of each EL student.
  • Facilitate opportunities for parents of EL students to develop home-school relationships, and encourage involvement in their child’s education.
  • Help students become proficient in the four language domains of listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
