Many immigrants and refugees have come to the United States from all over the world.   English Language Learners are a highly heterogeneous and complex group of students, with diverse gifts, educational needs, backgrounds, languages, and goals. Some ELL students come from homes in which no English is spoken, while some come from homes where only English is spoken; others have been exposed to or use multiple languages.  Montessori welcomes all!

Our community firmly believes in providing maximum support to our English Language Learners. Montessori education respects every child’s different pace of language development. Our ELL Support Staff closely observes each child’s language learning stage and aligns academic support with the most needed areas.The goal of the ELL Support Program is to provide English Language Learners (ELLs) with individual instructional support that will enable them to participate fully in their educational experience in our school and in their social lives in our community.
