Welcome to EL Intermediate English! Typically, students in this course have only been in the United States for one or two years. Students often spend their first school year in the U.S. at the English Learning Newcomer Center, which is at Hug High School or at Sparks High School, and then will take Intermediate English during their first year at North Valleys High School. Because these students are still transitioning to life at North Valleys, we have two periods of Intermediate English (Intermediate Reading/Composition and Intermediate English) and we work hard to make sure the students feel comfortable in our classroom and at school.
