Welcome to English as a Second Language!  The ESL program is for students who speak a first language other than English.  Students who are in the program work hard to improve their English speaking, listening, reading and writing. 

So far Clara Barton has 14 students starting the 2015-16 school year.  Students will work in small groups, focusing on practicing and improving their language skills. 

Congratulations to two students, grades 4 and 5, who made significant progress last school year.  They achieved high scores on the standardized ESL and PSSA assessments last spring and have EXITED the program.
