English

The English department at St. Robert Catholic High School offers courses and opportunities that focus on using unique, dynamic, and expressive pedagogy to develop our students’ literacy, communication, and critical thinking skills necessary for their success in academic and daily life.  In each of our courses we emphasize the development of listening, speaking, viewing, reading and writing skills through our exploration of a wide variety of texts. The texts have been selected to engage and challenge our students, providing them with opportunities to explore issues that affect them as individuals and members of their local and global communities, with the guidance of our teachers.

Our courses aim to produce critical thinkers and reflective writers, who may apply their knowledge of language and communications principles across all academic disciplines and professional settings.  Our aim is to create a world of life-long learners.
