Our students come from many different cultures and we are proud of the contributions that each student makes to our school community. We work hard to help each child succeed academically, and ultimately, to become World Class individuals.  The ESOL Team has high expectations for our ESOL students, and we believe in and celebrate their successes at Bel Air and beyond.  Students in ESOL receive support in the four language domains of Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking.
