The Language Arts Division believes that in order to become responsible and humane citizens who can intelligently contribute to society, students must understand the roles of language in the human experience and develop skills in communicating clearly, effectively, and honestly.
Language Arts by its very name suggests that students will study the language in its oral and written context and recognize the value and importance of the artistic use of language. At the center of this process is the development of the student’s critical thinking skills coupled with the development of a variety of means to express those thoughts. To these ends, the Language Arts Division provides students with the necessary basic skills of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Futhermore, it provides ample opportunities to critique and create literature, drama, speech, and media.
