English as a Second Language
As an English Language Learner, you will be placed at a level based on your testing and teacher recommendation. We have five ELD levels at Southridge. You will have the opportunity to move up levels based on your work performance, readiness and teacher recommendation.
The following is an outline of the courses you will be taking according to your level. If you have any questions, please speak with Miriam Cuarto Ramirez (356-2918), our Bilingual Community Liaison, or your school counselor. For more ESL information and directions to the Welcome Center click here.
