Established in 2000, the ESL program exists to serve the non-native English speaking community. ESL traditionally means "English as a Second Language." However in our setting, as in many places around the world, English is often a third or fourth language. Thus, you will often hear us refer to our students as ELLs (English Language Learners). Over the years we have served a wide variety of nationalities: Russian, Korean, German, Polish, and Brazilian, to name a few.
Our ESL students learn English in many different ways. In class we utilise a variety of strategies to acquire English. We also help with homework and assignments from other teachers. Academic vocabulary and writing skills are a strong focus for Secondary Students. The classes are small which offer excellent opportunities for mentoring and Christian discipleship. Essentially, ESL class is a safe place to learn and practice English so that students can be successful in their regular classes and their future lives.
Students from kindergarten through grade 12 are eligible for participation. All non-native English speakers must be tested for English language proficiency prior to admission. English proficiency is rated on a six-level scale. The minimum required level of proficiency varies by grade level. As much as possible, the ESL program is tailored to the individual language needs of students. It is transitional in nature in that the goal is to bring students up to grade level and have them fully mainstreamed into the rest of the school.
