Bilingual Education

  • We are a developmental bilingual program in which American Sign Language (ASL) and English are the two languages used for instructional purposes. We aim to preserve and build upon students’ abilities in both languages and strive for students to achieve fluency in both.  Students develop their expressive and receptive skills in ASL. Students also develop their abilities to read, write, and for some, speak and listen to English.  We focus on individualized language planning for each student.
