  5. Students who have limited or interrupted formal schooling go to our Newcomer Program in order to prepare for grade 9.
  6. Students who have current transcripts are assigned to their appropriate grade/ proficiency level  
  7. Most students spend 2 full years within the program. (Going from ESL A level to B level).  Students in their 3rd year take one mainstream English class and one mainstream social studies class supported by one additional English class within the ESL program. These students may take mainstream or SEI science and math classes based on teacher recommendation and/or MCAS results.  ESL students transition into full mainstream classes in their 4th year.
