Learn about our program
Languages spoken by our students and their families

We are all English learners. Some of us happen to speak other languages. English may be our second, third, or even fourth language. Our diverse backgrounds add richness to our classrooms, our personal interactions, and our understanding of ourselves and others. The Brunswick School Department’s English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Program serves students in grades kindergarten through 12th grade. We strive to ensure that all students have equal access to content instruction while learning English at the same time. We also strive to make our schools a welcoming place for students and their families.
