Students who speak languages other than English learn English skills in English Language Learner (ELL) classes.
Students work on Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening skills.
This year Como offers ELL classes at levels 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5 in our Langauge Academy, and also 3 and 4 as students move into mainstream.
We are proud to be the only SPPS school to offer all of those Levels in 2015-2016.
ELL students in levels 1 through 2.5 may spend much of their day in ELL classes, while level 3 and 4 students are mainstreamed into regular classes and have fewer and fewer hours of ELL instruction a day as their English skills increase.
