Support for Multilingual Language Learners

  • When students register, efforts will be made to introduce them to a student translator who speaks their native language. The translator will help the newcomer integrate with ease into the new Canadian high school environment.

  • Mr. Bramer is also available in the Guidance office to meet with any Multilingual Language Learners with questions or concerns.

  • Student progress is monitored on an ongoing basis, even after the student is no longer in the ESL program.

  • A Settlement Worker is available in the ESL Office once a week to help students in adjusting to life in Canada.  For more information about Settlement Workers, please visit

  • Accommodations are in place to help MLL students succeed.  Accommodations may include extra time to write quizzes, tests, and exams, using bilingual dictionaries, and/or working with peer tutors.

  • The Peer Tutoring Club offers tutoring at lunch and after school. Senior students assist younger students in understanding their homework in all courses. Many of our tutors speak different languages.

  • Students from our leadership course also act as teacher assistants in the classrooms to help students who may be having difficulty in a course.​
