English as a Second Language (ESL)
The ESL Department is committed to helping English language learners acquire the necessary language skills to succeed, not only in school, but in life as well. We believe every student has the potential to become a productive and valuable member of our community.
Guilford County Schools (GCS) serves a diverse population of students. There are more than 150 languages spoken in classrooms throughout the district. The top five languages are: Spanish, Vietnamese, Urdu, Arabic and French. There are more than 142 student cultural and ethnic groups represented in our district.
