English Second Language Services

The ESL Program of the Huron School District strives to provide the best language acquistion services and progams to all English learners. The ESL program emphasizes instruction in four areas of language development: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The goal is for English learners to acquire language skills while learning the academic content in the classroom.

Our students come from all over the world including home countries of Puerto Rico, Mexico, Honduras, Thailand, Burma, Cuba, Guatemala, Peru, El Salvador, China, and the Philippines. About 1 out of every 4 students in the school district speak a home language other than English.

Families are welcomed to the Huron School District at the ESL Welcome Center located in the Huron Arena, 150 5th Street SW.

Please contact the ESL Welcome Center, (605) 353-8660, for more information regarding the Huron School District's ESL Program.
