English

The Lisle Senior High School English program furthers the continuum of rigor and academic excellence introduced at Lisle Junior High School. The four- year senior high school program focuses on composition, language, and literature and is designed to encourage students to become critical and analytical readers, logical and insightful thinkers, and skilled users of written and oral communication. The curriculum offers the opportunity for students to hone their language potential in courses that are challenging but commensurate with their abilities while preparing them to engage in a complex, dynamic society. Students who successfully complete the required eight credits for graduation will meet both the career and college readiness standards as outlined in the Illinois State Standards.
