The Minot Public Schools ELL Program is a growing program within the district.  We have over 200 students in our program this school year, representing over 35 different languages!  We are proud to serve the needs of our English Language Learner population in the district.  We offer pull-out and structured immersion programs to assist our ELL students with accessing the curriculum provided for all students in the district.  We strive to help students gain the speaking, listening, reading and writing skills necessary to interact with their English-speaking peers and grade-level content and give them the needed strategies to accomplish it!  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of our teachers.
