In English, we build a love of reading through an emphasis on both independent reading and a study of classic works of literature. From the earliest grade levels, our curriculum is designed to prepare students for advanced high school programs (such as AP classes), with an emphasis on both foundational reading skills (systematic phonics instruction) and critical thinking and writing.
