Grand Opening of High Expectations

High Expectation

Mayor Gary Christenson recently attended the grand opening celebration for High Expectations, an English language school located at 2 Florence Street. They initially opened in 2015 at 67 Summer Street with a focus on college counseling and test preparation but soon realized a much greater need in the community for English as a Second Language.  

The school became accredited in 2019 by the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation. In 2022, it was certified by the Department of Homeland Security to admit F1 visa students. They currently offer an Intensive English Language Program to international students and local immigrants.

An increase in enrollment created the need for expansion and they relocated to 2 Florence Street, a 16,500 square foot facility on two floors. They currently enroll 285 full-time students and employ 15 faculty members and 12 staff/administrators. They expect the number of students and employees to continue to rise in 2024. For more information, including hours of operation, and registration, please visit
