At the Metropolitan School of Panama, we're committed to each child reaching their personal level of excellence. We offer English as an Additional Language (EAL) to students who require language support to help them be academically and socially successful at the MET, while maintaining the integrity of each student’s cultural identity and home language.

Our Approach

The MET’s Universal Inclusion Model allows our English Language Learners (ELLs) equal access to the curriculum. Students remain immersed in their classroom and acquire the language alongside their grade-level peers. EAL specialists and homeroom teachers work together to provide differentiated learning instruction and individual support to the students, helping ELLs acquire both content and language throughout their curricular day.

The language acquisition process is different for each learner and influenced by a number of factors. Some of these may include:

English language learners will receive EAL services for a minimum of two academic years or until they achieve a high intermediate English level and are ready to meet with their grade-level requirements.
