The World House Program is for HUSD newcomer immigrants students.  These students are to support English Language Learners (ELL's) at the secondary level in learning English and integrating into a new country, new culture, and a new educational system.  It has been offering support at Tennyson High School and Chavez Middle School since 2011. The criteria for students to enter the World House program is:

  • 7th through 12th Newly Arrived ELLs who have been in the United States’ School System less than two years and who are CELDT level 1 or 2. 

  • If they are CELDT Level 3 or higher regardless of time in the United States’ School system they don’t qualify for the World House.
