Amundsen English Learner Program 

Amundsen High School is proud to offer English learner/bilingual services to our students and families from all over the world.
Here are some quick facts about our English Learner (EL) program:
    • We have over 150 English learner/bilingual students, which is approximately 10% of our student body.
    • The majority language of our EL/bilingual students is Spanish. 
    • More than 15 other languages are represented in the program, including Arabic, Tagalog, Russian, Vietnamese, and many more.
    • 20 teachers are ELL or bilingual endorsed spanning almost all departments.
    • We teach the following EL courses: ESL I/II, ESL III, ESL Transitional English I, ESL Transitional English II, and ESL Transitional English III/IV.
    • We monitor all EL students with annual ACCESS testing; students can exit the program when they receive a 4.8 proficiency score.
    • We host bilingual advisory committee (BAC) meetings five times a year to support our bilingual parents and families.
