Students will take required English courses in grades 9 and 10. During their junior year, students are required to take Composition 11; additionally, as juniors and seniors, students must choose at least one more writing-based and two literature-based elective courses to complete graduation requirements in English. Students must pass both English 9 and American Studies or American Literature to enroll in Composition 11. Second-semester sophomores who have teacher-approval may enroll in available junior-senior electives (during the add/drop period for semester 2). Honors contracts may be available in non-honors courses. The successful completion of an honors contract will generate an asterisk beside the course name on a student's transcript.
