English as a Second Language

The ESL Program is offered to any student whose primary language is something other than English. The primary objective of the ESL Program is to promote the acceleration of English skills. Emphasis is placed on developing oral and written language skills. Students will be identified for this program by fluency level (beginning, intermediate, and advanced) and will receive instruction accordingly. Based upon an English language proficiency evaluation, students will receive one to five ESL periods of instruction per day.
