• English for Speakers of Other Languages

  • Overview
    GSA’s English for speakers of other languages courses are designed to correspond with a rigorous college preparatory program while supporting the English language acquisition process for increased fluency in writing, comprehension, and communication. Each level takes one quarter, and passing the course through assignments, participation, and various assessment methods is required to go on to the next level. 
          ESOL includes weekly support for science and history course assignments.
    Placement and Promotion
    In-house placement tests are administered to all students for whom English is a second language. Students are placed into these courses based on their scores on these tests. Students who successfully complete a course advance to the next level.
