    Middletown recognizes that the education of English Language Learners (ELLs) includes not only the acquisition of a new language and culture, but also requires special consideration and attention.

    Middletown offers a variety of language programs for our scholars, such as Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE), Two-Way Immersion (Dual Language), English as a New Language (ENL), and Languages Other Than English (LOTE in French and Spanish). We also offer a Newcomer Program in partnership with OU-BOCES for Students with Interrupted Formal Education (SIFE).
