ESL Placement Policy
Students will take a placement test and will be placed in the appropriate ESL levels.
Placement with TOEFL® Test Scores
In order for an international student to join a regular English class, the Grier School requires a score of 68/120, and a score of 17/30 in each of the four sections (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Students whose score is 68, but who do not get at least 17 in each of the four sections can still join a regular English class; in addition, they are required to enroll in an English support class for at least one semester, or until their scores fulfill the school requirements. Students whose score is below 68 will participate in the ESL program. Since ETS does not release scores that are older than two years, Grier School does not accept scores that are older than two years.
