PVSchools is dedicated to empowering all of our English learner students to grow into educated, world-class thinkers that positively contribute to society and become our future’s powerful leaders.
In order to fulfill this mission, we are proud to offer English language development (ELD) programming that best prepares English learners to achieve high levels of success academically, linguistically, and socially, while recognizing that students’ experiences, cultures and home languages enrich the learning environment for all students.
