English as a Second Language

Windham also provides a special program for eligible students who exhibit limited English proficiency. A language assessment is administered to determine a student’s level of proficiency in English. Students who demonstrate a significant lack of English proficiency are recommended for placement in the English as a Second Language (ESL) program. Certified ESL teachers provide intensive instruction in English language development, reading and writing.
