    ENL is for speakers of other languages who are recent arrivals in this country.  English as a New Language (ENL), formerly known as English as a Second Language (ESL). It is a specialized instructional program for students whose first language is not English. In an ENL program, trained and certified teachers use methods, techniques and materials designed to meet the needs of English Language Learners (ELLs).

    The four basic communication skills - reading, writing, listening, and speaking - are emphasized through a variety of activities. ENL also helps the Limited English Proficient (LEP) / English Language Learner (ELL) student adjust as quickly as possible to the mainstream of the school and to the community. Students are grouped according to ability in English - beginner, intermediate, and advanced.

    The principal goal of the ENL class is to prepare the student to exit from ENL and enter into the mainstream by developing their English skills and compentency.
