Student Support Services

EAL Program

At SAIS-Abu Dhabi we utilize the WIDA screener as a benchmark to identify a student’s English proficiency skills in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Utilizing this benchmark, we are able to identify students within the school who need additional foundational English support before they are able to function in the mainstream English class.

Through the hard work of talented and highly qualified teachers, EAL students are provided support with our EAL Program which allows teachers to provide smaller teacher: student ratios and provide even further differentiated support to students to help them achieve proficiency in their English skills that will help them to achieve success in their mainstream classes.

We pride ourselves on inclusive education and all students will be provided with appropriate learning activities, learning environments, and materials to meet their general education, in age-appropriate classrooms.
