English as Second Language (ESL)

The ESL programme is specially designed to help integrate non-native English-speaking students into the Rafflesia School programme as quickly as possible. Specialist teachers work alongside the class and subject teachers to give the students a helping hand in mastering English.

All non-native English-speaking students are tested when they arrive at school, in order to determine their English language proficiency level. This information is then used to help place each student in the appropriate programme, which is tailored directly to meet their English language needs.

Our ESL specialists and classroom teachers can also determine placement in the ESL programme, to dynamically provide greater support or challenge as it is needed.
