What to expect when you arrive

What to expect when you arrive.

  1. You will be greeted when you enter the building and shown to the ESL Center.
  2. A teacher will come get your child and take them into the next room for the test.
  3. The child is tested to see how much English he/she understands.
  4. The tests are different for each age group. For kindergarten and 1st grade the test is very short, less than 30 minutes. The teacher reads a story and asks questions to see if the child understands. For the higher grades the tests will take longer and include writing and some math. These tests could take an hour or more.
  5. While your child is being tested you will need to answer just a few questions about your child.
  6. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have regarding your child or the services we provide.
