English as a Second Language (ESL)
English Language Learners are offered services through the district's English as a Second Language program. Students are taught intensive English instruction through sheltered instruction strategies while learning core content at their home campus. Instruction is provided to help develop listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing composition of the English language. Students are to master state standards and a great push is given to increase vocabulary development. Students in this program must meet program qualifications in order to participate.
The ESL teacher at Lamar Middle School is Herminia Alvarez.
