ESL

 

The Carmel Clay Schools English as a New Language (ENL) program is committed to educational excellence and continuous achievement for all English language learners. 

The ENL program at Carmel Clay Schools serves over 500 students. We have over 64 languages represented among our student body from 89 countries across the globe.

The goal of the ENL program is to raise the English proficiency of all students of Limited English Proficiency (LEP) to that of native English speakers at their respective grade levels. Once a student becomes fluent in both basic communication skills as well as academic language, the student is exited from the program. 

Carmel Clay Schools employs certified teachers, as well as instructional assistants, to provide direct ENL instructional services as well as support in the general educational classroom to students in the program. The ENL teachers also work in collaboration with other school faculty and staff members to develop appropriate instructional experiences to enable ENL students to attain their full potential.
