Bilingual & ESL Programs

 
 
§89.1201 The goal of the Waxahachie ISD Bilingual Program is to enable English language learners to become competent in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in the English language through the development of literacy and academic skills in the primary language (Spanish) and English. 

The goal of the Waxahachie ISD ESL Program is to enable English language learners to become competent in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in the English language through the integrated use of second language methods.

We believe that we will develop bilingual, bicultural, biliterate lifelong learners that are capable of functioning in and contributing to a multicultural society.
