The road to success is filled with challenges and rewards for all students; even more so for those whose native language is not English. Every year, the Houston Independent School District recognizes students graduating with top honors; this year, the Multilingual Programs Department is proud to announce that a large percentage of the Class of 2014 Valedictorians and Salutatorians were former English Language Learners! 32% of Valedictorians in the 2014 class started out as English Language Learners and 43% of the class’ Salutatorians were ELLs too! We wish them the best of luck if all of their future endeavors!!
