Multilingual Learners

 

The Multilingual Learners (ML) Program in District 86 consists of specific English sections, as well as sheltered courses in various departments, as seen in the program of studies. 

Historically, our program has been housed at Hinsdale Central for all students in the District. Beginning the 24-25 school year, the program will expand to both campuses. Over the next 4 years, we will continue to roll out more classes to achieve equal programming.
