West Hartford Public Schools values the diversity that our ESOL families bring to our community. You’re family’s language, culture and unique experiences enrich us all.
We want to work together with teachers, families and students to…
Welcome children and families to our Duffy community.
Respect and celebrate all cultures.
Support children in meeting grade-level expectations.
Helping each child reach English language proficiency in speaking, listening, reading and writing.
ESOL stands for English Speakers of Other Languages, it is a program for students with a language other than English at home. ESOL classes are taught in English and occur during the regular school day.
In West Hartford we use REACH materials that were created by National Geographic to guide our curriculum. Our curriculum was written by West Hartford ESOL to align to CCSS and grade level units. The goal is that the work done in ESL classes will support what the are doing with their classroom teacher.
