English Learners

We work to assist English Language Learners in their acquisition of Standard American English, and help them feel comfortable in all classrooms as they strive to assimilate into American culture. The ESL program will help students to develop skills necessary for success in American schools, universities, and the workplace. We model an appreciation for diversity so that the South Milwaukee Learning Community will value and welcome individual differences as they learn about other cultures.


Newcomer Center

The mission of the South Milwaukee Newcomer Center is to provide newly arrived students and families with a means to learn basic English skills along with learning to function in American society.
