The English Department offers mandatory courses in English 9 through 12. The English curriculum offers studies of literature in the areas of poetry, short stories, novels and drama in both graphic and traditional text. The department also offers enrichment at all grade levels for students wishing to study a wider variety of literary works; in addition, at the senior level we provide advanced material in preparation for post-secondary. Senior students have the option of taking elective courses, such as Literature 12 and Writing 12. Any students requiring further skill development at the Grade 11 and 12 level are recommended for Communications 11 and 12 in lieu of English 11 and 12 (Communications 12 meets grad requirements). Descriptions are available in the course selection handbook.
