English as a Second Language

Students who do not have English as their primary language can access English language instruction. This instruction covers conversational abilities, reading, and writing. Alongside traditional classroom teaching, there is a computer lab equipped with interactive ESOL resources and audio/video materials to enrich the learning process. These educational opportunities cater to both adults who have not finished secondary education and those who need to acquire English language skills (known as English Language Learners - ELL). To qualify, students must be of age beyond compulsory schooling and formally withdrawn from public school.
