English at Louis St Laurent
At the Junior High level, through MYP World School approaches to teaching and learning, we place a focus on enabling students to use language confidently and competently in a variety of situations for communicating, personal satisfaction and learning. Students become confident and competent users of language arts through many opportunities to listen and speak, read and write, and view and represent in a variety of combinations and relevant contexts. Assessments, both formal and informal, help to guide students to achieve to the best of their potential.
At the High School level, Louis offers a multitude of Language Arts courses (12 in total), including the Middle Years program as well as the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. With a focus on preparing young adults for their journey after high school, we strive to develop the communication and critical thinking skills necessary for success in post secondary studies and life long learning.
