English Language Arts

The English program in the high school includes two tracks of courses in Grades 9 and 10. Juniors and seniors are permitted to select Communication Arts, American Literature, British Literature, Interpretation Through Dramatic Literature, and Advanced Placement courses. In addition to the required English credits, several elective special interest courses are offered. All courses, which are one semester in length, include a survey of literature, composition, vocabulary, speech, grammar, research and discussion. Students who plan to take the Advanced Placement course should receive an A average in their previous English courses.

All courses are worth 1.0 credit. Since 9th and 10th grade courses are sequential, students must pass English 9 before enrolling in English 10 or other upper-level courses. Courses in journalism, music and film are also offered. The journalism courses must be taken in sequence. Students who exhibit a high degree of proficiency in language arts may double up in upper-level courses.
