At CCSMS, middle school English Language Arts focuses on the fundamentals of reading and writing: classes complete genre studies on both classical and contemporary texts. High school curriculum is restructured to provide rigor that will prepare all students for college English courses: in ninth grade, students study world literature; in tenth grade, British literature; in eleventh grade, American literature, in twelfth grade, composition.
Beyond the college preparatory classroom, English teachers are proud to offer rigorous curriculum that is dedicated to offering diverse content in both our middle school and high school: gifted and talented, honors, and AP courses provide structure, demand, and increase skill. In every class, teachers use literature and nonfiction texts to explore universal themes, author’s style, and structure. Emphasizing reading, writing, speaking, and technology in their classes, teachers incorporate strategies that appeal to diverse learning styles.
