• Welcome to the ESL program

    English as a Second Language

    ESL instruction can be compared to instruction in most foreign language classrooms. If you can imagine your high school Spanish, French, etc. class, then you have good idea of what an ESL class looks like.  However, there are some differences.  In some ESL classrooms, there are students from many different levels. You may have a class with advanced, intermediate, and beginner students all learning together.  This is unlike foriegn language classrooms and most any other class where students are purposely grouped by their level.  Additionally, at the elementary level in our program, students are pulled out to work with ESL staff. At the middle and high school, students take ESL class as a part of their daily schedule.
