• High School Teachers

    CCSD educates English Language Learners in 14 area high schools from North Charleston to West Ashley to East Cooper.  This group of students serves as ambassadors of their culture to the community at large as they seek to establish their future goals. CCSD strives to create a learning environment that encourages students' pride in their cultural heritage along with the cognitive and affective support to help them become contributing members of our society. 

    In all area high schools, English Language Learners (ELLs) may take English classes to enhance their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.  At many of our high schools we offer an ESOL English class for elective credit.  Students at these schools are able to study English both semesters of the 4 x 4 block to improve their language acquisition. In the fall, they study ESOL prep followed by the core course in the spring.  This intensive course of study accelerates the learning process and prevents the learning gap that can occur when studying language on a 4 x 4 block.
