Sandy Spring Friends School Boarding - #YouAreWelcomeHere

ANetwork of Support Working together, the school nurses, counselors, and learning specialists create a supportive network whose goal is to fulfill the need for communication, support, and program development. Specialized Instruction International students take two to three years of language development instruction and support in English and History taught by experienced teachers who are specially trained in teaching English Language Learners. This specialized instruction ensures that students are well prepared to succeed in mainstream (non-ESOL) high school and college courses.

Our international students also take a special course that explores American Culture through a sociology perspective. We believe language and culture are deeply intertwined, and that language is best taught in the context of culture. The goal of the course is to make crossing cultures a positive, productive, and enriching experience, by helping students better understand the nature of the American character, strengthen intercultural awareness, and develop sociocultural analytical skills.
