International and E.S.L./E.L.L. Students Policy

The Glenburnie School community has enjoyed the experience of welcoming international students from countries throughout the world. We look forward to further opportunities in the future.

  • Students, who are unable to attend a visiting day, will be interviewed via digital media, to determine the level of language ability, strengths, and weaknesses, etc.

  • There are a limited number of placements offered for those students requiring an integrated program with additional ESL/ELL support and programming.

  • The number of placements offered will be dependent on the number of ESL/ELL students already registered at Glenburnie School.
