My son/daughter doesn’t know any Arabic. How do you accommodate this?

In every grade level, 1st-8th, we offer a 1st and 2nd Arabic group. Students who are not Arabic speaking and are at the beginner’s level, they would join one group. Students, who already speak the language and come from Arabic speaking ethnic background, would join another group. Based on the teacher’s assessment, students may go up a level depending on how they excel in the beginner’s group. New students would have to be assessed by the teacher during the first week of school, and parent will be notified of which group.
