The EL (English Learner) programs supports multilingual learners as they develop the academic English needed to be career and college ready. Our program also develops the English skills in the domains of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. The students in our program typically have first learned a language other than English; and come from a home where the primary language spoken is a language other than English. However, students who speak another primary language other than English are not automatically ELL, but they may be screened to see if they qualify for English learner service. The EL students at Highland represent a wide variety of language groups.
