If you’re an adult who wants to learn English, improve your English-language skills or earn a high-school equivalency diploma, the Great Neck Public Schools Adult Learning Center at Clover Drive offers day and evening classes designed to meet your needs.
A range of English-language classes are offered, from beginning literacy to advanced ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages). In preparation for the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) examination (formerly known as the GED exam), classes are available to improve math, reading, science, social studies and writing skills.
Once enrolled, students may also take elective classes, such as Conversational English, Crossroads Café and Citizenship, to name a few, at no additional charge.
