Classes & Departments

Class work, assignments and homework reinforce concepts taught in class and give students vital opportunities for learning. These are an essential part of the learning process at Robert Thirsk High School and crucial to success. A student's placement in a course is an indication that the student has made a commitment to full participation in that course. Students are expected to meet deadlines for work in a timely manner.

  • English Language Arts
