English Language (EL) Program

Welcome to the TPHS English Language Learner Program
The English Language Learner Program is made up of over 180 students from all over the world who are learning the English language while meeting graduation and college entrance requirements. All courses are taught in English with some primary language support. Students advance through the program at their own pace and are then placed into the mainstream academic program when they have demonstrated a skill level that allows them to be reclassified as Fluent English Proficient.
English Learner Program Goals:
To develop English language proficiency in reading, writing, listening, and speaking
To provide access to grade level content area instruction as well as the opportunity to be four-year college eligible
To foster an appreciation for the United States culture while preserving a unique cultural identity
