English Language Development

Classes in the ELD program are designed for a student who is new to the country and/or English is not their primary language. Students will be given an English proficiency exam to ensure correct placement within the program.

English Language Development I (EL)

A class for students who have little or no proficiency in the English language. All four language skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) will be taught at the basic communication level.

English Language Development II (EL)

A class for English language learners who have basic English proficiency in speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Skills in all four language areas continue to be taught with an additional emphasis on reading and writing at the intermediate to advanced level.

English Language Development III (EL)

A transitional class for advanced English language learners. All four-language skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) will be taught with a focus on reading and writing at advanced to mainstream level.
