At Newark Public Schools our vision is for all emergent bilingual students to graduate prepared for college and career success. This encompasses having obtained a cultural awareness of their individual roles as contributors to the global community. This is accomplished by providing access to a rigorous curriculum and an education that embraces their languages, cultures and diversity.
Newark Public Schools is committed to providing quality instructional programs for our emergent bilingual students in order to increase their academic achievement across the district. By improving ESL and bilingual instruction, we can better support students on their paths towards college and career readiness and success. By building school cultures that embrace our students’ languages, cultures and diversity, we are preparing students for participation in the global society of today and the future.
