English Language Learning Program
ADVANTAGES School International (ASI) provides scaffolded support for our English learners with an English Language Learning Program. ASI implements quality programs that focus on student learning and success. Throughout each step the ADVANTAGES School staff provides training and support to ensure program success.
The ASI model for English Language Learning includes an initial proficiency or placement test to help guide learners to language acquisition and academic knowledge.
English Fluency Placement Tests
Students in grades K-6 will take an English Certification Placement geared toward their age level. The Kids Placement test will score them in a range of 1-5.5. Students will be placed in the appropriate level of ELL courseware based on their placement test score. Students in grade 7-12 will take the General Placement Test. The scores place students according to the Common European Framework for Reference (CEFR). Students will be placed accordingly in the Academic II courses based on their score. For Dual Diploma Program entrance students must be at a level A2+ to maximize their success with the Dual Diploma Course Content.
