English Language Learners (ELL)
St. Louis Park Public Schools are committed to providing specialized instruction to our students who are English Language Learners (ELL). Our schools are enriched by the presence of children from other cultures. When students arrive who do not speak English, they spend part of the school day in their general education classrooms with additional support in instruction of academic English. This instruction assists ELL students in acquiring skills that enhance their learning and progress in school. Interpretation and translation services are provided as families require them, enabling the parents to have an active role in supporting their child's education.
Services are provided in every school and with more than 250 children receiving ELL services, the district has a vital and inclusive program.
