English Speakers of Other Languages
We are committed to building a strong community that celebrates its cultural diversity as well as cultivating and guiding each child's intellectual, emotional, social, and moral potentials. To this end, Shelton has a full-time ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) teacher who formally assesses all students and provides support and services.
ESOL students receive accommodations in all classes, in which the teachers utilize strategies and practices to maximize the learning process. Additionally, the ESOL teacher provides reinforcement during a special class several times a week in order to accelerate the acquisition of the English language.
