Students must be enrolled in an English course every semester until graduation. A total of 40 credits earned are required for graduation, with 30 credits earned in grades 10-12.
Courses are of four basic types:
Junior/Senior Core Curriculum of courses offering a mixed concentration on all language arts skills (oral and written expression, listening and reading experiences). Junior and Seniors should be enrolled in the core curriculum.
Specialized electives concentrating on specific skill or interest areas
Although all courses in the English program are of potential value to all students, the courses preceded by a "P" meet college entrance requirements, and therefore are recommended for the college-bound student.
