English Language Learners
SAFE provides ELLs with the support they need while including them in the regular
classroom setting. They receive instruction in English and are given as
much support in their native language as necessary.
The academy uses ELL instruction that focuses on reading, writing, listening,
and speaking in English. Since “conversational language” is different than
“educational language,” we strategically teach “education vocabulary.” This
helps our scholars adapt to what they see in textbooks and hear in classes
and prepares them for high stakes testing. Our goal is to help our ELL
scholars become fluent and comfortable using the English language in all aspects
of life, especially in the educational setting.
