Senior & Freshman English

Every English class teaches grammar and writing skills, each year becoming more advanced. The writing heavily emphasizes on making thesis statements and describing and explaining the topic, following the Six-Trait Analysis. Students will also read classic literature from different periods of time and will analyze and understand them. Grades come from daily work, essays, and tests.
