The West Hartford English curriculum is comprised of full-year freshman and sophomore courses plus a variety of full-year and semester electives for juniors and seniors. While courses vary in content, focus, and level of difficulty, these skills - literature and language study, writing, and critical thinking - receive careful attention in every course. In addition to helping students develop interest and proficiency in these areas, English teachers provide students with extended and individual assistance through the teacher-student conferences, portfolio work, and state and SAT test preparation. After completing the required English 9 and English 10 courses, students chooseamong the elective offerings for a program suitable to their interests and needs. To meet district and state requirements, all students must earn eight semester English credit (four credits). Three of those credits must be earned in any full-year literature-based courses. All English courses have a summer reading requirement.  Note: Before enrolling in upper level courses, students must fulfill, in sequence, their English 9 and English 10 requirements.
