English Language Support Program
To support our diverse community, Franklin School provides a comprehensive English Language Support Program (ELSP). The ELS program allows our international students to advance their English language skills within our preparatory program offerings. Our inclusive and comprehensive language programs support the acquisition of English for students whose first language is not English.
Instructional support for English Language Support is provided for English language learners to increase their English language competency, providing them with the skills required to integrate successfully into the standard academic English program required for BC high school graduation, and preparing them for entrance to universities and colleges. This individualized support is offered through supplementary courses and/or small group tutoring. Support is also provided within the regular classroom setting through differentiated instructional methods. The ELS program is designed to support both social adaptation and academic success.
