The goal of English as a Second Language is to prepare students to function successfully in classrooms where English is the medium of instruction for all subject areas.
It is our mission to teach the English language to ESL students so they can gain access to the standard course of study, graduate with a diploma and participate fully in US Society. The ESL program strives to keep ESL students in school in order to give them the English language and academic skills necessary to obtain a diploma and successfully function in the United States. ESL is funded by State and Federal Programs.
