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
  • Advance their knowledge of literary techniques and genres through the reading of classical, traditional, and modern selections
  • Learn to understand and appreciate literature
  • Develop writing skills in all four composition styles: narrative, descriptive, persuasive, and expository

Congratulations to the Cavalier Powerlifting Team! On Saturday, seven Cavaliers competed in a powerlifting meet at Cudahy High School. Five of the seven athletes medaled, and two of those students are going to state!

“Coach Litscher and I are proud of these student athletes for the hard work and dedication to training," said powerlifting coach and STM science teacher Mike Fricke. "Strength training has a unique way of instilling confidence and growth in young men and women, and in the end that is the most important outcome anyone would want of our students at St. Thomas More High School.”

Stay tuned for more updates on our powerlifting team as some of them compete in Germantown in February and then at the state meet in Appleton on March 2 and 3.
