English as a Second Language (ESL) Services


"We believe ALL students can meet/exceed standards or demonstrate continual maximum growth towards it."
As Hamilton City Schools embraces the talent, skills, and diversity of all students we are especially proud of our English Language Learners who bring little pieces of the world to our city and schools.  Hamilton City Schools serves over 1000 students representing over 40 different countries.  Our staff of 20 TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) certified teachers and 8 bilingual specialists/interpreters support our students/families with high quality instructional practices in the classroom and the English Language Proficiency Standards in a variety of settings. 
We are proud of and grateful for the strong relationships and the impact of our program.  We honor the diversity and the impact our students and families have on the culture of our schools.  We continually strive for our students to acquire English proficiency so as to meet grade-level content standards and to be prepared for graduation and beyond!
