Providing Direction and Support
The High school language arts department engages students in rigorous activities to strengthen literacy skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening through an extensive study of texts in English. The various English and Language Arts elective courses allow students and teachers to gain confidence and independence with the communication skills necessary for the modern workplace and/or college.
Theatre Arts courses promote the active and artistic interpretation of texts. From script and set selection to production and theatre management, students in theatre arts courses are expected to participate as a cohesive artistic group. Advanced study in this area encourages personal responsibility as well as positive reinforcement for a job well done.
