ELL Department Philosophy

Naperville School District values students’ diverse backgrounds and their unique contributions to the learning community. In order to empower learners who are meeting the challenges of a new language and culture, District 203 will support English Language Learners as they develop social, cultural, and academic competence by creating a learning environment that:
  • Expects students to meet high academic standards
  • Facilitates effective communication in English through reading, writing, speaking, and listening
  • Encourages risk taking and inquiry
In this way, Naperville School District  will provide ELL students with an optimal learning environment in every academic setting
