King's-Edgehill is a junior and senior high school that offers ELL support to international students who are enrolled in secondary school. International students who study at a junior or senior high school work towards their secondary education while learning English. Canadian and international students attend all classes together, except for one ELL class, which is offered to meet the academic and linguistic needs of international students.
The Senior School ELL classes are cross-referenced as academic English classes, which means units on media, novels, short stories, poetry, etc, will be covered, as well as regular ELL centred lessons. Some Grade 10, 11 and 12 students will write English proficiency exams, such as TOEFL or IELTS, when they apply to university. In addition to the instruction and practice time in class, students must dedicate a portion of their free time towards preparing for these exams. Staff will help students book their official tests, submit additional score reports, and help students arrange transportation to and from the test centre.
In the Junior School, students will attend regular English classes and may be given the option to attend additional ELL centred classes if required. The junior ELL classes will help students improve their English proficiency, and assistance with preparation of projects (for example, the annual Science Fair) in other subject areas will be given.
