Imagine Learning logo

Our K-5 students have the opportunity to build their English language skills with Imagine Language & Literacy, which is a program designed to build upon students' listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills, while being adaptive to their own pace and progress.

ESL Library logo

Our 6-12 students have access to a program called ESL Library, which provides students and their teachers with materials, interactives, and lessons to support English language development. Our English department staff and self-contained teachers at the middle and high schools have this access for scaffolding and tiered instruction.

Both Imagine Language & Literacy and ESL Library are available for Single-Sign-On through Clever, but for more information, please visit the elementary and/or secondary pages.
