English Language Development

For English language learners, San Jose High Academy offers 35 ELD/ELL/SDAIE courses taught by 8 full-time teachers through the International Academy.  eldThe English Language Program Coordinator is released for two periods, and one bilingual instructional associate assists teachers and English language learners.  Many of our ELD students become fluent and are able to graduate in three to four years. 

We are an international school, with students from around the globe speaking more than 25 languages.  All programs are open to those new to English; so, a student may be in ELD or ELL classes and take classes in our International Baccalaureate or Project Lead the Way programs.
