Atlantic Community School District is a Class 3A school in
southwest Iowa serving a student population of approximately 1,500 Kindergarten through High School students. Our ELL program officially started in 2005, when we were
blessed with students who allowed us the opportunity to experience,
teach, learn from, and become friends with students and families from
Vietnam, China, Romania, Federated States of Micronesia, Kuwait, and Mexico. Our
current ESL population originates from the Federated States of
Micronesia and Mexico, with the majority of our students learning in our
Washington Elementary community of students who are Pre-K to 3rd grade. We have a total of approximately 38 English Language Learners.
