About the School

Our school is dedicated to helping English Language Learners (ELLs) develop their English proficiency. We believe that mastery of the English language is essential for college and work. Students are offered additional training in English as a New Language, technology, and other subjects during our extended-day program and on Saturdays. Classes are designed to prepare students to meet graduation requirements and the challenges of college and career. Supportive teachers will assist students as they meet their academic potential and become well-rounded, productive members of society. Newcomers are welcome.
