English

The Program of Studies in English Language Arts is designed to foster the development of skills over three years of high school English. 

The outcomes of the Program of Studies states that students will listen, speak, read, write, view and represent to: 

  • explore thoughts, ideas, feelings, and experiences; comprehend and respond personally, critically and creatively to literature and to other texts in oral, print, visual and multimedia forms; manage ideas and information; 
  • create oral, print, visual and multimedia texts to enhance the clarity and artistry of communication; and 
  • to respect, support and collaborate with others.

Our department is very focused on supporting students to make proactive choices in their course selection that will promote growth and success. Students often begin in the -2 stream and gradually, as their skills and goals evolve, move into the -1 stream. It is important as courses begin that students and parents are aware of the initial assessments done to support students to make the decisions that will lead to success and build confidence. 

We are proud of the results our students achieve on the Diploma. It is an exam that is truly assessing your learning in English Language Arts after 12 years of education. That success begins in the choices you make with the course available.
