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).


World Languages will be a premiere department that collaborates to ensure second language learners experience rigorous and highly relevant learning in every classroom, every day.


Collaboratively ensure that all AISD students experience a rigorous and highly relevant learning experience in every classroom, every day.


  • 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.
