The English Department provides a variety of course offerings in reading, writing, and speaking as well as the study of literature, media and the theatre.
Grade 9: The goals of Freshman English are to review and strengthen the five language skills of reading, writing, speaking, listening and thinking. These establish the foundation for all subsequent
English/Language Arts courses. The 9th grade students must successfully complete three trimesters of English/Language Arts classes in either English 9 or Advanced English 9. Placement into Advanced English is based on recommendation from 8th grade teachers.
Grades 10-12: Students must take three trimester credits each year in English/Language Arts courses
(nine total). It is recommended that one course be taken each trimester. Of these nine, four are required from specific areas; the other five course credits are elective choices.
