Multilingual Learners

The landscape of Northfield High School is deeply enriched by the many diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds of our students. Our Multilingual Education (MLE) program serves all Language Learners, including those with home languages such as Spanish, Amharic, Arabic, Dutch, and Vietnamese. Many of our students finish high school with national recognition for their pursuit of college-level biliteracy in multiple languages.

In alignment with Denver Public School (DPS), the mission of Northfield’s Multilingual Learners (MLL) program is to ensure every Language Learner succeeds by providing opportunities to achieve the knowledge and skills necessary to become contributing citizens in our diverse society. 

Our MLE team holds regular Parental Advisory Committee (PAC) meetings. These meetings are open to all families of MLL students and opportunities for increased communication between the school and home. For questions about Northfield’s MLE program, contact Assistant Principal, Adam Creapo.
