At LMACS, the goal for ELLs, as it is for all students, is to become college and career ready. In order to meet the needs of ELLs, we strive to provide a culturally responsive, quality curriculum that is supported by differentiated instruction and flexible grouping. Though we are a low-incidence school, it is recognized that an ELL of any level may enroll for any of our trimesters over the course of the school year, and as a staff, we need to be prepared to best meet the needs of that student. Because of the very small nature of our school, faculty and instructors work closely with the ELL coordinator to ensure that there are frequent and regular conversations about content lessons, modifications and support for each ELL student.
