English as a Second Language

missionThe mission of the English as a Second Language (ESL) program at Summit Public Schools is to create a culturally competent environment where students acquiring English are given the opportunities and tools necessary for success. We believe that effective language learning is meaningful, relevant, and interactive, and that it will lead students to a place of belonging, content mastery, as well as academic and personal fulfillment.
