Mrs. Lissette Santa

The English as a Second Language (ESL) program is designed to meet the needs of students whose dominant language is not English and whose proficiency in English is limited.  

The purpose of the program is to develop and maintain a sense of self-worth and confidence in ESL students, to develop those linguistic and academic skills necessary to succeed in an English speaking society, and to provide ESL students with an orientation to American culture while maintaining pride in their linguistic and cultural heritages.
