English

Grade 9

There are two basic aims of English Language Arts — to encourage students to understand and appreciate the significance and artistry or literature and to enable students to use English confidently and for a variety of purposes and for a wide range of audiences.

High School

There are three course sequences for English. There is the English Language arts stream 10-1, 20-1, 30-1; the 10-2, 20-2, 30-2 stream and the Knowledge and Employability (link to Knowledge and Employability section) courses 10-4, 20-4, 30-4. Students generally follow one stream taking the pre-requisite courses although certain transfers are permitted.
