ESL (English as a Second Language)
IST welcomes students from different regions of the world in order to infuse our school culture with diverse social and academic perspectives. Our school uses the dynamic indicators of basic early literacy skills as a means to collect information regarding student phonemic segmentation fluency, nonsense word fluency, oral reading fluency, reading comprehension, and word reading fluency. This information is used to determine what, if any, ESL supports or early literacy training supports the student may need during the school year.
