The ESL Program seeks to advance the English proficiency of all English Language Learner students in order to provide them with the necessary vocabulary, reading, writing, and speaking skills, as well as cultural background to be successful students in all of their classes at Lexington High School. The ESL Program, along with LHS staff, also work to provide emotional and academic supports where necessary during the process of transitioning to a new culture and a new learning environment.

IS YOUR CHILD EXPERIENCING CULTURE SHOCK?
Sometimes ESL students and/or their family members go through a cultural transition period called "culture shock". This is an emotional transition from one culture to another that affects mood, behavior, sleep patterns, and relationships. It often appears in stages; please see the the details in the link above.
