English Language Arts is a corner stone for education at Richmond High School. It is well known that being able to read, write, and critically think regarding complex ideas allows for anyone to learn anything. Our ELA teachers work incredibly hard at putting together a curriculum that will stimulate student's in their abilities througohut their four years at Richmond.
The Department is co-chaired by both Ms. Schmalz and Ms. Sciacca, who have both had successful careers as English teachers at Richmond High. Under the new Common Core State Standards, English classes focus on learning skills in the classroom that assist our students in reading at various levels, and multiple writing styles. The ELA department collaborates together, and with help from our texbook and library staff, provide current and relevant materials for our students to interact and learn from.
