English Language Learners » Home


Harvest Park offers the English language learners (ELL) class for second-language learners so that they may develop both academically and socially. Each ELL-identified student will have two classes of language arts and one class of history. The goal of the program is to develop reading and writing skills across the language arts and history curriculum. This class offers English learners an opportunity to explore American culture, practice speaking and focus on reading to increase comprehension and vocabulary. The standards-based instruction addresses the proficiency levels of all students. Placement in the ELL class is required for all students scoring below a level 5 on the CELDT (California English Language Development Test).
