Department of ENL -English as a New Language 

Welcome to ENL

 The English as a New Language Program (formerly known as the ESL Program) provides English Language Learners (ELL’s) a research-based program comprised of two components: a content area instructional component in English (which may include all core content, i.e. English language arts, math, science, or social studies) with home language supports and appropriate scaffolds, and an English language development component (Stand-alone and/or Integrated English as a New Language). 

ENL Department courses are developed to support the academic achievement of all ELL’s so that they may attain the highest level of academic success and language proficiency. 

Our ENL Program is a state and federal mandated program which seeks to provide intensive English skills to non-English speaking students through the use of ESL methodologies and techniques. Teachers incorporate all of the language arts modalities of listening, speaking, reading and writing. These classes not only teach English Language Arts but also teach English through the content area. 

ENL Instructional practices are based on language acquisition theory. ENL classes are designed to make academic language and content accessible and comprehensible to the English language learner so that the student may reach his or her full academic potential while learning the English Language. Learning materials are differentiated based on English proficiency level and student academic history.
