/  English

The goal of the English curriculum is to facilitate the development of basic communication skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. In addition, students need to apply the writing process skills to laptop composition. English is required all four years of high school.

Students will:

  • Refine vocabulary and advance their knowledge of grammar, literature, and composition
  • Develop the skills necessary for communicating accurately and logically through learning the basic rules of language
