Welcome to the Dennis Yarmouth Schools! Our English Learner Program serves students from 15 different countries, who speak over 20 languages . Our English Learners (EL) students are enthusiastic learners who bring a wealth of cultural and experiential assets to our school community. 

We are committed to providing a high quality educational program based in current research and best practices for our English Learners. Our goal is to promote the academic language acquisition that students need to achieve success in American schools, in addition to promoting the social language acquisition that gives students access to American culture. We value our students and believe they bring rich resources which we incorporate into our instructional practices. 

As a WIDA state, our students are assessed each year by the ACCESS test, which measures English language development in Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. See link to the left to learn more.
