The bell rings. Science Hill High School students crowd the hallways. Among them, five international students head to English as a Second Language class, where they learn American culture, improve their reading and writing skills and get support for other courses.
Wilber, a ninth-grader with a big smile and an even bigger personality, is one of five students in the second-period class. When Wilber’s family relocated here years ago, he stayed in Mexico with his grandparents. Recently he moved to Johnson City from San Juan Cacahuatepec, Mexico.
