Salina Intermediate School

You Are Welcome Here: Support for Immigrant Students

Nearly half of the students in Michigan’s Dearborn Public School District are English language learners, many of whom have come from war-torn countries such as Syria and Yemen.

Our 20-minute film, You Are Welcome Here (also available with Arabic subtitles below), showcases the ways in which the district is helping its immigrant students succeed, featuring Salina Elementary School and Salina Intermediate School in the South End of Dearborn. Extended interviews are available along with recommended resources below.
