The West New York Board of Education believes that all students be given the same opportunities to a thorough, efficient, and equitable education. Rather than lowering the bar of expectations, the West New York Bilingual Program affirms the need for all English Language Learners (ELL) to strive to higher levels of cognitive and effective excellence. In essence, it is the philosophy of the Bilingual Program that all students can and must learn maximally and creatively. Our English Language Learners must aim to attain higher order-thinking skills needed to not merely function, but also thrive in the technological twenty-first century.
