English Language Development Program
Our English Learner Program has multiple levels to address our students’ needs. All EL students that enroll at Radnor High School are assessed to ensure that they receive the proper level of support with the goal to reach level 5*. Students will progress through the various levels at a different pace. Levels may be skipped based on student progress and need. All decisions will be made in consultation with the EL case manager, guidance counselor, student, as well as the student’s parent or guardian.
*Students exit EL at Level 5 and enroll in regular class.

Teacher Recommendation Required
English for English Learners (ELs) at Radnor High School is open to students whose primary language is not English and who meet specific screening criteria. It is a place to explore the language of the American high school as well as a place to improve fluency in English. Students from many different language groups meet each day to improve their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in English. Since students spend most of their day in content-area classes where only English is spoken, these classes also serve as a place of support in helping students acquire learning strategies that transfer to other academic disciplines and assist them in interacting socially. The students will be administered the state mandated ACCESS for ELs® test which measures students' progress in the course and serves as part of the criteria for exiting the EL program.
