STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"For over fifteen years we have provided English as a Second Language courses for residents. With the school population being comprised of over 40% English language learners, the adults we serve also struggle to learn English. Through the generosity of many individuals and organizations we have been able to establish a small computer lab. This lab enables us to provide online courses in English as well as a variety of computer, business and medical training programs."
