English Language Support
Apex is committed to supporting students as they develop English proficiency. Students who are still learning English have full access to all content area curriculum in a language-rich learning environment. English language teacher’s work with classroom and content teachers across the subjects to provide appropriate language supports for student learning.
Inquiry-based learning in the early years offers flexibility for English learners to explore new ideas, solve problems, and express their learning with minimal language interference. Language development in all four domains of English proficiency: reading, writing, speaking, and listening is encouraged at Apex.
We value the continued growth students’ mother tongue and acknowledge the benefits of multilingualism across the content areas; therefore, we encourage students to read, study, discuss, and build content vocabulary in all the languages they speak at home. We recommend that families engage fully in the on-going development of language and literacy at home and in the community.
