Chelsea Public Schools - Bridge to Success
Chelsea Public Schools, Chelsea, MA

Vision Statement

"We are a collaborative community that promotes the academic, social, emotional, and cultural development of English Language Learners towards successful completion of a secondary education."

Core Principles

Five core principles underlie the planning for the BA. These principles will inform all aspects of the structure, pedagogy, and operation of the BA:

  • Cultural and language differences are respected, valued, and celebrated;
  • Collaboration informs every aspect of classroom instruction and daily operation for students, faculty, and staff;
  • Integration of content-based ESL instruction occurs across a curriculum tailored to students' diverse and changing needs;
  • Accountability and high expectations guide all aspects of programming, instruction, and operation; and
  • The social and emotional needs of students and families are considered in concert with classroom instruction.
