English Language Learners
Ross Sheppard's English Language Learner (ELL) program is designed to support students who are working at the English as a Second Language (ESL) Benchmark Levels of 1 to 5. Students are placed in the appropriate ESL level where they practice their English language skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening at a pace that allows for success at their ability level.
Students study the foundations of Canadian society in Canadian Studies 15/25, and experience several field trips to explore various aspects of Canada. Math 15 ESL and Science 15 ESL build the foundations needed to excel in future courses. Reading 15/25 and Expository English 15/25 are designed to increase reading comprehension and writing ability, and support students in their other classes.
Every ELL student will feel fully supported in our program and will feel a part of the Shep community.
