English provides many opportunities to enrich the lives of our students. We teach students to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and feelings to others. We develop their reading and listening skills so others can communicate with them.
Reading in particular enhances every students’ cultural, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual development. Literature, especially, contributes to this development.
Reading also enables students to acquire new knowledge and to build on what they already know, developing as learners, curious to explore the world. We make it a priority that students become life-long readers and writers.
Students experience learning opportunities at BCHS that challenge them to develop their language abilities to the highest possible level, enabling them to participate as valued and valuable members of society.
