EL (English Learner)
The EL (English learner) program at Pinewood provides instruction and support to students who are learning English.
The goal of the program is for students to become proficient in the following domains of English: reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
EL instruction is aligned to grade-level curriculum and EL instructors are licensed by the state to teach English as a Second language.
EL students are encouraged to continue developing their home language(s) in order to transfer knowledge and skills from their native language to English. Furthermore, being multilingual provides many lifelong benefits and opportunities.
