Dual Language Program
Celia Clinton Elementary is the first neighborhood school to offer a two-way dual language program. Beginning in pre-K or kindergarten, students in the program speak two different native languages and receive instruction in both English and Spanish.
Bilingual children who are educated in their second language have been seen to outperform single language children in their native language. Bilingualism also increases brain cognition by utilizing the highest levels of thinking, focus, and awareness.
Focus on Parent Engagement
One of Celia Clinton's biggest goals is to provide more opportunities for parent involvement. We believe school should be a safe and welcoming place that's a core part of the community. This year, we launched a Parent Engagement Room in partnership with the United Way's Community Service Council, which offers various classes and programs to families throughout the school day. Through this free program, parents learn tools to help their children succeed in school and Spanish-speaking families can access additional support without language barriers, including English classes. Meet our teachers and staff at any of our parent engagement events throughout the year -- from literacy nights to family dinners to school dances!
Social Emotional Learning
At Celia Clinton, we strive to create high-quality learning experiences that educate the whole child by meeting his or her social, emotional, and academic needs. Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions. We are proud to offer a social worker on campus as well as an embedded counseling agency to support our students' emotional needs.
Service about self
One of Celia Clinton's most active partners in education is the Rotary Club of Tulsa. Since 1993, Tulsa Rotarians have mentored and tutored our students, provided them with reading materials and dictionaries and donated more than 1,000 books to the school library. The club itself supports Celia Clinton's family literacy outreach and assists teachers with purchasing classroom supplies.
