Norman-Sims Elementary

Our Programs

We offer a wide range of programming at Norman and Sims. Our academic programming includes:

Early Childhood Programs

Pre-K 3/ Head Start for children as young as three and a bilingual Pre-K for four-year-olds. Click here for more information about Pre-K!

Bilingual Education 

Late Exit Bilingual Program

Late-exit bilingual programs, also called 'maintenance bilingual programs' provide a balanced combination of academic instruction in students' first language and in English. English language learners' first language serves as the foundation for development of English language skills and later, academic knowledge in both languages. The ultimate goal is transition to mainstream classrooms where students continue their education with native English speakers.

Special Education Programs

Primary Placement for Children with Disabilities (PPCD), Resource, and Speech.
