English Language Development
Welcome to the English Language Development (formerly ESL) page for Hatboro-Horsham School District. Our district welcomes families from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. We currently serve students and families who speak over 30 different languages, and our Language Instruction Education Program serves students at all levels of English language development. English Learners and their families enrich our schools and community. We are proud of our diversity!
