English for Speakers of Other Languages
Students spend approximately two to three years in the ESOL program progressing through beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. ESOL student groups meet by English proficiency level. ESOL students may also receive instruction in general education/content classrooms. These classes are taught with ESOL and general education/content teachers jointly instructing the whole class. The ESOL curriculum is aligned with the Language Arts Program of Studies which prepares students for the transition from ESOL into language arts classes alongside their native English-speaking peers.
