 Acquiring skills in the critical areas of reading, writing, thinking, listening, and speaking with clarity are the constructs on which language learning is based. Reading, writing, and comprehension skills are integral parts of the entire curriculum. The English program focuses on grammar, spelling, composition, and comprehension as the student develops an understanding of writing as a graphic form of language. The curriculum is structured to focus on the development of literacy by addressing the major areas of learning: reading, writing, oral communication, and comprehension.

Reading skills are developed phonetically through the student's work in all areas of the curriculum.

  • Once reading is mastered, the student's skills are extended to reading literature and to the art of self-expression through creative writing.

  • The program focuses on critical thought and the skills necessary for effective written and verbal communication.
