Our Mission  

 The mission of the English Learner Program in Hamden Public Schools is to promote and support the linguistic and academic language learning so that all students can succeed in a global environment. 

 

 

Our Vision 

Our vision is to ensure that all English Learners are able to achieve high levels of performance given relevant instruction, continuity and collaboration with the entire staff.  We will ensure equity while maintaining their cultural and linguistic identity. 

 

"Language is not a genetic gift, it is a social gift.  Learning a new language is becoming a member of the club- the community of speakers of that language." - Frank Smith 

"Learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about things." - Flora Lewis
