English Language Learners (ELL)
At MMSD, we work to ensure that English Language Learners (ELLs) become fully proficient in English and perform at grade level in all academic areas.
At Capital High, English as a Second Language (ESL) services are offered to all ELLs and are tailored to their individual learning needs. Services are typically provided by a Bilingual Resource Teacher (BRT) through general education classes.
Our ESL staff assists in identifying and testing ELLs through the Access testing. They also provide interpretation and translation services to support our family-school partnerships.
