The English Language Arts Department is proud of our comprehensive Windham School District English Language Arts Curriculum Grades K-12.  Our standards-based classes represent a diligent, cooperative and concerted effort by professional educators comprising a multiplicity of skill sets and experiences.  Our professional staff are committed to working with and supporting students in all grade levels representing all ability levels.    All programs ensure a high level of rigorous instruction and provide a readable and user friendly format for staff, students, parents, and community members. 

Our curriculum evolves from a traditional elementary school model through grade four to a three or four person team-taught model beginning in grade five and continuing through grade eight.  Our Grade 9 and Grade 10 programs are co-taught by English and Social Studies teachers in an effort to provide additional support similar to the team experience that students have experienced in the lower grades.  Carefully developed cross-curricular units provide focus and relevance to the instruction and prepare students to advance to grade 11 where students will move to either our full year World Literature and Composition Program or into the Advanced Placement Program.  In Grade 12, students can choose from a variety of elective courses or continue with the Advanced Placement Program through graduation.
