    Jackson-Madison County Schools' ESL department is dedicated to providing comprehensive English language support to students whose first language is other than English. Our experienced and certified ESL teachers work closely with over 800 active ELs and a total of close to 1,300 ESL students across the district, representing a diverse range of over 50 home languages, including Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Portuguese, and many more. We are committed to ensuring that all ELs receive the individualized instruction and support they need to master both conversational and academic English, empowering them to achieve their full potential.

    Key Features of Our ESL Program:

    • Expert Instruction: Our certified/endorsed ESL teachers possess the expertise and dedication to create engaging and effective learning environments for ELs.
    • Personalized Approach: We recognize that each EL's language learning journey is unique. Our teachers tailor their instruction to meet the individual needs and learning styles of each student.
    • Diverse Language Support: We cater to a wide range of home languages, ensuring that ELs feel supported and understood throughout their learning journey.
    • Academic Success: We are committed to helping ELs achieve academic success by providing them with the language skills they need to thrive in all subjects.

    Additional Initiatives:

    • Adult ESL Classes: We offer flexible and accessible Adult ESL classes to help adults improve their English language proficiency for personal and professional advancement.
    • After-School Tutoring Program: Our after-school tutoring program provides additional support to ELs who need extra help with their English language skills.

    If your child qualifies for ESL services and is an English learner, we offer ESL classes at all schools across the district. We are confident that our program will provide them with the language skills and support they need to succeed in school and beyond.
