English Competency Levels for International Students
International students are required to have a minimum level of English to be admitted to Menaul School. Once admitted, international students are placed in either one of two levels of English as a Second Language (ESL) classes (ESL I and ESL II) to improve their proficiency. Menaul School accepts the Test Of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) to evaluate English language proficiency and for appropriate placement in ESL classes. The following guidelines are used:
|TOEFL Test Scores|
|ESL I Placement||40-55|
|ESL II Placement||55-70|
Our goal is to have all international students to place out of ESL by the end of their junior year to allow them to participate in regular English classes their senior year to prepare them for their college studies. Students must have a TOEFL score of 80 to place out of ESL classes.
