The primary mission of the district's World Languages program is to meet the educational needs of each student whose native language is not English (Bilingual/ESL) and those of English speaking students who are learning a language other than English (LOTE).


To provide students a connection to the languages of the world in order to be college and career-ready.


To provide AISD students continuous access to language development through rigorous learning experiences, using innovative best practices, while facilitating growth and support.


  • We believe that relationships built through skillful and thoughtful communication are the foundation of effective instruction.
  • We believe that English learners should have equal access to the curriculum.
  • We believe that our department is a point of trust with parents.
  • We believe that a positive work environment fosters student success.
  • We believe that all students should have the opportunity to acquire languages and experience cultures.
