English Course Streams

English 10C   (5 credits)

English 10C is a common English program which puts all students in the same space, allows them to understand their assessment from a foundational level, and then see whether 10-2 or 10-1 is most beneficial for their learning needs. Students enrolled in this course will finish with credits in either 10-2 or 10-1, whichever is the course that best highlights their strengths and abilities.

 

English 20-1/30-1 (5 credits each)

Successful completion of this stream is a requirement for post-secondary university programs. Emphasis is on high-level critical and creative thinking, reading, and writing.

 

English 10-2/20-2/30-2  (5 credits each)

Successful completion of this stream fulfils the requirements for a high school diploma. These levels are also suitable for post-secondary requirements to many college programs.

 

Advanced Placement English

These programs are designed for students who want more out of their English education. Students who are often bored by the pace of a regular classroom will be happy in an AP class. While being more challenging, they are not necessarily more work. While being more rigorous, they are not necessarily more stressful. The discussions are more dynamic, as are the activities and assignments.

 

Note: students can enter the AP program at any level without having completed the one before.
