Teachers at Baranoff are specially trained in ESL (English as a Second Language) instruction to meet the special language needs of their students.

What is ESL instruction?

The focus of the ESL program is to teach language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies using strategies and methodologies appropriate for second language acquisition, and to prepare students to be successful in all academic subjects.
