In the Language Arts department, we believe:

  • Through rigorous reading and writing, we discover personal values, build self-awareness, and develop empathy to have a more meaningful and enjoyable life.

  • Students should have a degree of choice in reading and writing to gain insight and effectively express themselves.

  • Grammar and usage and vocabulary are best taught in the context of authentic learning.
