Diversity and how the school and teachers are dealing with it

Asian students, Pacific Islander students and people with more than one race total to 215, 3 and 15 respectively. The school has a diverse population and many students are not of the native English. This is not a simple process where one can only plug the information needed. The teachers, parents and staff should be able to celebrate the school�s cultural diversity in an environment which is safe and secure.
Language and literacy are the most essential art of education since all the other learning in the class would be impossible without the involvement of the reading, writing, listening, speaking and the view for the purpose of gaining more knowledge. Since the school has different ethnicities, the school has employed teachers from every ethnic group to help booster the language problem. The teachers by ethnicity ratio corresponds to the students by ethnicity ration which is a good thought there are no teachers for the pacific islander and students with more than one race.
