Department Philosophy: Believing that every student is capable of learning language arts, and Social Studies. Many opportunities are provided for all students to strive toward their maximum potential and to increase their confidence in themselves and in their own abilities. Teachers and parents work together in helping students to appreciate language arts, and Social studies, and to become more proficient.    Realizing that English skills are stepping stones to success. Language arts instruction must continue to grow to meet the changing demands of our society. Literacy requires understandings and habits of mind that enables citizens to make sense of our world, to think critically and independently, to recognize and weigh alternative explanations, and to deal reasonably with problems.
