Department Heads: Ms. Melanie White
The S.C. English department offers a wide range of courses to meet the needs, abilities and interests of diverse learners.
In grades 9 and 10, students can take either applied or academic English; in grades 11 and 12, either college or university courses are offered. In addition, enriched English courses are offered at grades 10, 11 and 12. Students who are looking for additional challenge and variety in English class may apply for this program.
Students choosing courses should consider a number of factors, including the ability to work independently, skill levels in reading and writing, and post-secondary plans. Work with an English teacher and/or guidance counsellor to make the right decisions.
"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers."
- Charles W. Eliot
