Our ESL program provides a planned instructional program for identified students whose dominant language is not English.
Our goal for our English Language Learners at Christiana Middle School is to provide ELLs with instructional supports that will enable them to participate fully in their educational experience in our school and in their social lives in our community.
Students will develop both basic interpersonal communication skills (BICS) and cognitive academic language proficiency (CALP), to develop proficiency in the language domains of listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
Annually, we give the WIDA to determine growth in language. This year the test window will be in March and April.
