All Language Arts courses are created to aide our students to become culturally aware and independent thinkers.  Readings at each level consist of core works, plus additional works chosen by the individual teacher from approved reading lists. Composition instruction focuses on the thesis essay, both critical and personal, with a required research project in each grade.  All students must complete these assignments in order to receive credit for their English class.   In addition, each course includes regular vocabulary study and the practice of speaking and listening skills.  All English courses meet the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts.
