Newcomer Programs


Newcomer Programs

These classes are specifically designed for students who are new to the country. This means students who have been in the U.S. for 3 or less years and are just starting to explore the world of English. These programs are available at select AASD schools.

Students in these classes typically take the EL content area science, math, and social studies courses as well as the English pullout classes.
