To prepare each student to participate successfully in our English speaking classrooms and for life in the United States is our goal. We strive to provide our bilingual/ESL students with the skills necessary in speaking, listening, reading and writing to successfully participate and learn in the regular classroom. At the same time, we encourage our students to maintain their native language and cultural heritage.
The ESL class provides explicit English language instruction along with support for the materials covered in the content area classes. When a student passes the exit requirements, which include reading and writing exams, he/she is transitioned into the regular schedule with minimal support.
