Multilingual Learner Programs include Dual Language, Bilingual Education, World Language and English as a New Language (ENL) Programs. Bilingualism is a lifelong pursuit, and that journey begins here in our schools. Port Chester stands out as the largest multilingual community in the region and as a leader in the world of Bilingual Education. We support our mission of Success for All Students by sparking a passion for learning another language and providing access to Multilingual Learner Programs to students UPK-12. Students have the opportunity to engage in grade-level content in another language, graduate with the Seal of Biliteracy, and become true global citizens who are bilingual, biliterate and bicultural.



We have been hard at work improving and aligning our Multilingual Learner Programs within the district. We will have updates in Bilingual Education, English as a New Language, and World Language coming Fall 2023!
