Lawrence Public Schools

Lawrence Public Schools offers a fully implemented Bilingual Program K-12. Over the last 10 years, the Lawrence School District has been identified as one of the largest and fastest growing Hispanic communities on Long Island. In addition to a wide range of academic supports, the Bilingual Program provides another means to address this challenges faced by English Language Learners.   With a shift from the traditional ESL Program to the new Bilingual Program,  five new Bilingual Teachers were hired and two ESL Teachers were re-assigned to Bilingual Classes.  We are happy to report that our Bilingual Program has been received with overwhelming community support.
