The Willagillespie ELL program provides instruction to students whose limited experience with the English language interferes with their ability to participate fully in the regular classroom and in becoming academically successful. Enhancing a student’s ability to communicate in English is the primary goal of our ELL Program. Our instructional model incorporates both elements of “Structured English Immersion” and “Content-Based ESL.” Oregon’s English language proficiency standards guide our instructional program. In addition, to our pull-out program, we also have on staff a bilingual instructional assistant who helps in the classroom.
