The English as a Second Language (ESL) Department works with approximately 55 students each year. These students hail from almost 20 different countries, and speak almost fifteen different languages. The home language of these students include Bosnian, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese. We encourage our students, parents and ESL teachers use this site as a resource for the development and growth of students' language skills. If you have any questions, please contact Department Supervisor Marisa Bel at the phone number or e-mail address listed here.
