Students Accelerating In Learning (SAIL) Program

West Ottawa Public Schools’ SAIL Program meets the needs of the academically advanced student. This program services students who are advanced a year or more above in their grade level in the area of language arts. Students receive 75 minutes of language arts instruction daily in this pull out program. During this instructional time, students participate in challenging reading, writing, speaking, and listening activities that incorporate grade level and above grade level skills. Critical thinking is promoted to empower students to challenge themselves. Students are also involved regularly in project based learning projects that allow them to apply their learning to real world issues, practice and perfect communication skills, and share their love of learning with others in the community.

This program is offered at all West Ottawa elementary schools.
