Professional learning tailored to meet your students where they are.



Whole-child meets growth mindset.

All learners come to us with skills, asset and previous knowledge; and each of our students is capable of achievement.

In the same regard, every child has a history. For some, that biography includes interrupted formal education, L1 literacy gaps, culture shock, or trauma.

Refugee Classroom considers a range of factors in order to effectively target EL student growth from a whole-child lens. With an explicit plan and tools in place, we set high expectations for our students, confident that students will aim for the bar, wherever we place it.
