Breakfast and lunch are served at several ASHS sites. ASHS students who qualify (based on N.Y. C.
Dept. of Ed. Guidelines) receive metrocards for travel to and from school.
ENGLISH AS A SECOND
For some ASHS
students, English is not the home or primary language. To meet the needs of these students, many
ASHS sites offer ESL classes. ESL
students develop written and oral proficiency in English and progress to gain
knowledge in the content areas. ASHS
Excel Program offers after school instruction for ESL students who plan to take
the SAT exams.
