    Courses Taught:

    Honors English 9: The emphasis of the honors ninth grade program is on literature, literary genres, and composition. The literature is presented by genre : short story, novel, drama, nonfiction, and poetry. Students are required to identify and analyze critically the major characteristics and technical aspects of each genre . Composition is an integral part of the literature program. A supplementary reading program consisting of fiction and nonfiction complements the regular program. Discussion seminars require oral participation and class leadership. Language skills, including vocabulary, style, and conventions, are practiced in writing and speaking.

    Activities Sponsored:

Our all-inclusive club meets to enhance the Social and Emotional learning of students.  Community projects are also a part of sticker club--last year, students collected items of need to donate to Operation Backpack Children's Foundation.
