Michelle Estill

The English Learners Program is committed to supporting EL students and parents throughout the Grossmont Union High School District. The English Learners Office supports the district by providing a full range of learning opportunities equivalent to those provided to native speakers of English.


The International Newcomer Center (INC), welcomes new high school students (grades 9-12) whose first language is not English and who have not previously attended school in the United States. The goal of the INC is to help students make a smooth transition into Grossmont Union High Schools. The center assesses English and primary language and math skills, recommends placement, creates a student profile, evaluates school transcripts, and advises students and families on course selection. The INC also provides information on graduation requirements, available school programs, and community resources.
