English Language Arts

The goal of the English Language Arts program is to create literate, thoughtful communicators, capable of controlling language effectively as they negotiate an increasingly complex and information-rich world.  Students will refine specific skills and strategies in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language and will use these skills and strategies widely as tools for learning and reflection.  Exploring a variety of texts, students will understand and appreciate language and literature as catalysts for deep thought and emotion.
