    The Department of ESL and Bilingual Services strives to prepare students for an expanding global environment by accelerating academic excellence through the teaching of a second language.

    • The ESL program assists non-native English speakers in acquiring the language proficiency and skills necessary to be successful academically in the areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking while also fostering individual students’ languages and cultures.
    • The Dual Language and Foreign Language at the Elementary Schools (FLES) programs give students the opportunity to learn a second language (Spanish) during the optimal years of language acquisition. The programs foster learning environments that develop competence in learners to become bilingual, biliterate and bicultural.
