In the upper school Language Arts Program, students will work on strengthening all areas of their literacy: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Students will learn to actively listen, consider multiple perspectives on issues, and share their own ideas effectively with confidence. All writing is aimed to increase students’ skill and joy with language and prepare them for the rigors of academic writing in high school. Literature is carefully selected to tie into other areas of the curriculum or highlight developmentally relevant themes which will keep students actively engaged and foster a lifelong love for reading.
