Aligned to the philosophy of the English Language and Literature department, lessons come to life when students learn in a fun and authentic setting. Beyond pen and paper tests, students get to apply their learning in various performance tasks and project-based learning. As a result of the myriad of learning experiences, they are able to hone and demonstrate their 21st Century Competencies.
