LEAP High School is dedicated to serving students who are new to the United States and are learning English while earning a high school diploma. As an alternative high school, LEAP High School enrolls students up to age 20 and provides an educational opportunity for students whose needs often do not match the offerings provided in traditional high schools. Founded in 1994 as LEAP English Academy and later named International Academy - LEAP. We are now LEAP High School and proudly continue our mission to educate the newest members of the Twin Cities community.
LEAP provides social studies classes adapted to the language-acquisition needs of its students. Though subject matter at LEAP is the same as in mainstream classes, "New Americans" may be less familiar with particular topics than native English speakers, therefore, additional attention must be given to building background knowledge.
At LEAP, students get the opportunity to become faster with their keyboarding skills and learning about technology tools that they can use in their education and work.
The English as a Second Language Department offers English language instruction through listening, speaking, reading, and writing. English language instruction begins with pre-literacy classes and progresses through a university level writing course.
Rose Santos is the principal of LEAP High School. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
