The Language Arts Curriculum follows a grade-by-grade progression that enables students to achieve excellence in reading, spelling, and writing. In order to reach these goals, students employ various methods, including:

  • Reading and responding to texts

  • Exploring and responding to literature

  • Communicating with others – verbally and through writing

  • Utilizing English language conventions

  • Exposure to a variety of genres to develop an appreciation and understanding of literature

  • Expressing themselves in a wide range of styles using written, oral, and artistic forms of communication

  • Becoming successful writers with the feedback and collaboration of teachers and peers

  • Working both independently and cooperatively on projects

The Language Arts Curriculum is enhanced by participation in writing and spelling contests, creative interaction with community organizations, and interdisciplinary projects with other departments in the school.
