When given the chance to shine; provided with excellent support, motivated by intrinsic rewards, and challenged with high expectations our ELLs can prove that they cannot just compete against “mainstream” students, but even beat them where it really counts – academics. -Mario Ibao, Multilingual Programs Secondary Specialist
