EL Services: Empowering English Learners
Pickerington Schools warmly welcomes English Learner students to our community. We are committed to providing a safe, inclusive, and supportive learning environment for all students, including those who are learning English as a second language. Our teachers and staff are dedicated to helping students achieve their academic and personal goals, providing them with the resources and support they need to succeed. Pickerington Schools believes that diversity enriches our community and celebrates the unique perspectives and experiences that each student brings. The district is excited to have new students and looks forward to helping them thrive.
