AP English Language and Composition is offered to students in Grade 11 or 12 who demonstrate advanced reading and writing skills. The course focuses on the rhetorical analysis of selected non-fiction passages, synthesis, and argument writing. By engaging in the reading and writing activities in the AP Language and Composition course, students will become enthusiastic participants in civic discourse. Students will gain the critical thinking skills necessary to deconstruct and analyze text not only within but also outside the academic setting. Students enrolled will be expected to take the College Board exam in May.
