English Language Learners (ELL) Requiring English as a Second Language(ESL) Programs
English as a Second Language programs are for students born in Canada or newcomers whose first language is not English or is significantly different from that used for instruction in Ontario schools. The students are integrated into the regular classroom programs according to age appropriate placement. ELL’s receive various amounts of English instruction depending on their individual needs. The ESL teacher may provide direct student service in small groups or they may support students in the regular classroom(s).
