EL/Bilingual Programs

Elmhurst is a diverse community that is home to over 57 home languages. The top most spoken languages other than English are:

Spanish, Malayalam, Polish, Urdu, Greek and Arabic. As the English Learner (EL) population continues to grow, our EL and Bilingual programming will continue to change and improve in order to best meet the needs of all our students. Culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students offer a wide variety of attributes that enrich our classrooms. The goal for all of these students is to continue to foster their native language development, while at the same time learning academic content and the English language. This focus on biliteracy will ensure that our students are truly prepared for college, career and life as global citizens.

Elmhurst currently offers two types of programs for EL/Bilingual students: Transitional Program of Instruction (TPI) and Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE). We will be developing a Dual Language program for future implementation.

For information on the Elmhurst Dual Language Program, visit this website.
