What is the Mother Language Program?

The Mother Language Program serves to provide after school languages classes for students to engage in their native languages. The program is coordinated by Diana El Bizri and Alexis Williams in collaboration with ABA parents and teachers. The classes are taught by native speakers of the given language from our local community. Please click here to see what classes are currently being offered.

This program came together under the initiative of ABA parents and is run by them on a voluntary basis. All parent-coordinators are volunteers chosen and elected by the parents. ABA relies on this parent initiative and support each year to continue running a successful program for our students. Thank you for your continued support, and if you are interested in taking part in contributing to this program, please contact Diana El Bizri, our current parent-coordinator for the program!
