English Language Learner Support

Shepherd is a school rich in diversity of language and culture. Every year we happily welcome families with limited experience with the English language. Our classrooms are welcoming and visually supportive. Our English Language Learning department provides support for student, teacher and families along the way. We have an ELL borrowing library in native languages for families to continue to support their home languages, as well as learn English through a wide variety of classic book selections that help build both academic and social vocabulary for our students.
