English language learners are a very diverse group. You might be surprised to learn that 44 percent of our ELL students were actually born in this country.
Some of our new students may have never experienced learning in a formal classroom. Some have escaped persecution but are still managing the trauma that comes from living as refugees. Others come from fractured families, split by borders and politics. Some of these children arrived on American soil unaccompanied—alone.
