The English Language Arts curriculum is a standards and competency-based program aligned to Common Core State Standards. Courses are intended to help students develop skills in reading, writing, and oral communication. The major areas of concentration throughout four years of study include literary analysis, composition, and grammar. Each student is placed in an English class based on his/her previous work and a teacher recommendation. In addition, the English department offers various semester electives that all students, but especially those interested in possibly pursuing language or performing arts after high school, are encouraged to explore.
All students must accrue four core English credits and must pass English every year.
