The English Language Arts department is committed to nurturing our students to become the best readers, writers, listeners, and oral speakers possible. By the time they graduate high school, students will have the skills necessary to achieve success in college and career pathway. Students will be challenged to read more non-fiction, think critically, locate evidence to back up their assertions, and use this evidence in their writings or speeches. Additionally, students will become more adept at using the conventions of Standard English including grammar and mechanics. The team members within the ELA department promote higher achievement by presenting Common Core content in a supportive and nurturing environment.
