Hagerman is a Bilingual Transitional School where students receive rigorous instruction in both English and Spanish. The students who are identified as English Learners are held to the same high expectations set for all students while being supported by our Bilingual Education Team. Hagerman prides itself in having a strong bilingual program where students are meaningfully engaged and encouraged to strive for excellence every day. All of our teachers are committed to strengthening our students’ home language and developing proficiency in their second language. We are proud to say that most of our teachers are TESOL endorsed and through culturally and linguistically responsive practices, they create an environment that is conducive to respect students’ diverse backgrounds, identities, strengths and challenges. We are proud of the growth that our bilingual population has made over the past years and look forward to continued growth as our students become bilingual and biliterate.
