Those students for whom English is not their first language and have been identified by an initial assessment using the Arizona English Language Learner Assessment (AZELLA) will be placed in the English Language Development (ELD) four hour block program. We recognize the essential needs of our students to become proficient in English in order to meet the challenging state standards, fully participate in the content class offerings and feel an integral part of our Amphitheater High School experience. Note: After taking the AZELLA, the student’s parent(s) have the right to decline all services of this department.
