ESOL

At Scott Elementary school, all students benefit from a diverse population of families, representing over 16 languages and cultural backgrounds.  The Scott ESOL team (English for Speakers of Other Languages) supports these second language students by providing a supportive environment which focuses on improving  language acquisition in a collaborative or traditional setting emphasizing the 4 language domains of listening, speaking, reading, and writing while promoting the highest academic achievement across all grade levels and subjects.


Aligned with Chesterfield County’s Design for Excellence 2020, our goal is to emphasize mastery of 21st century skills and prepare students to compete in a global community where they are urged to celebrate their cultural heritage and embrace the inherent advantages of being bi-lingual in a global society.  Further development of students’ home language and literacy is highly encouraged to further this goal.
