Intensive English Program Overview
The Intensive English program is designed to assist students with English fluency and comprehension levels lower than what is needed to be fully successful in mainstream content classes such as Math, Science, Reading and Writing. The goal of this program is to support your child’s progress in content classes while helping them increase their grade and fluency levels.
Students are placed in classes with a higher Teacher to Student ratio to provide additional one-on-one and small group support towards a successful fluency growth rate. Our goal is to support each child in moving into a full mainstream schedule as quickly as possible. Every student is a wonderfully unique learner and as such their fluency level improvement and time spent in our Intensive English program will vary.
