Multilingual / English Learner Program

Multilingual/English Learner Program

The San Mateo Union High School District is proud to serve approximately 1,000 students currently classified as English Learners and an additional 2,000 students who were once English Learners. We value and celebrate the fact that approximately 30% of our students are bilingual and come from all over the world. We are committed to providing the most relevant and rigorous education we can to propel our English learners to college and career readiness. We do this through providing opportunities for professional learning and collaboration year round, making English Learner data accessible, and using data to inform our practices and policies. We understand that we need to continuously improve and hold English Learners as our collective responsibility, and anchor our work in this understanding. Our English Learner students and their families are assets to our district and provide all members of our community opportunities to learn and grow.
