“Amphitheater High School has a high population of English language learner and refugee students who often come to our school with limited language and math ability. We've developed a program that meets students at their level, differentiating all the way down to a kindergarten level if necessary. The keys to our success are: recruiting tutors to reduce the student-teacher ratio as low as possible, using hands-on manipulatives, and differentiating instruction through the ST Math software program which is entirely visual based. This creates a robust, inclusive environment where success is possible without the barriers of language.”
