The mission of the Youngstown City Schools' Intensive English Program is to promote student achievement by providing leadership and resources for the development of an appropriate curriculum that will allow English Learners (EL) to acquire proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, thus allowing them to successfully function both socially and academically.

Students are instructed by qualified personnel who are knowledgeable in the theory of second language acquisition. Students are clustered and mainstreamed in the regular classroom with native English speakers and are shadowed by Educational Assistants and/or TESOL (Teachers of English as a Second Language) teachers throughout the day.
The Intensive English staff supports the students and the mainstream teachers by utilizing and suggesting alternative methods of instruction. By modifying instructional strategies, the mainstream teacher is able to meet the needs of the English Language Learner, thus increasing comprehension of content and optimizing student performance.
