The Academy of Nursing and Health Sciences has a dynamic English Language Learners (ELL) population. This is a bilingual school and we offer services in the form of bilingual tutors, teachers, and support staff. Our Teachers of English to Speaker of Other Languages (TESOL) work to improve ELL students’ reading, writing, speaking and listening skills.
The Academy of Nursing and Health Sciences offers pull-out, stand-alone, ELL English classes that are designed to appeal to multiple intelligences such as audio, visual, and kinesthetic. Appealing to multiple intelligences allows all students to access and display knowledge in a variety of ways. Our students work cooperatively and independently to sift through content and gain a better understanding of the material. Working in this way also provides students with the opportunity to improve both interpersonal and intrapersonal skills.
In addition, the Academy provides support staff that pushes in to regular education classrooms to help our ELL's receive academic support in their general education classrooms.
