ESL is an academic program designed to facilitate the acquisition of English by the limited English proficient (LEP) student. The program serves students in grades seven through twelve by immersing them in intensive English instruction for one to three periods a day depending on their level of ability as identified by the Language Assessment Battery (LAB). ELLs (English Language Learners)/LEPs are held to the same high standards and are aligned with the New York State Standards in the academic content areas. The ESL program approach is interdisciplinary with a primary focus on academic language and literacy.
The Manhattan Hunter Science High School is extensively supported by a complete offering of supplemental services and programs such as the After-School ESL Tutorial program and Lunch and Learn.
