According to the San Juan Unified website, students in the district enroll speaking a total of 72 different languages, other than English. The majority are Spanish and various dialects of Middle Eastern, with Russian running a distant third.

It's got to be impossible to maintain learning--and test scores--when so many students don't speak English.

yep, you're right. My grandson has had Russian, Ukraine, Moldovan, Iranian, Iraqi, Pakistani and Spanish speaking kids in his class. Everything is taught in English so the non-english speaking kids sort of sink or swim. You can tell the ones who will probably do ok because the parents at least make an effort to speak to their kid in English
