  • Welcome to our HHS ESL 3 & English Transition website!

    Acquiring second language skills (in writing, reading, speaking and listening) is both exciting and challenging.  When you have any questions about any of our class assignments, please visit rm. 278 period 10 and / or e-mail me at m.schmitz@hackensackschools.org.  I'd be happy to help you!     

    Looking forward to the best school year yet!

    The Mission of the Hackensack High School Bilingual and ESL Department is to empower all Bilingual and ESL students to become fluent communicators.  We believe all students have the ability to:

    • become active and productive citizens in the community and in the world
    • develop strong literacy skills in L1 and L2
    • apply 21st century technology and content skills aligned to the NJ Common Core Standards and WIDA Standards
