The Orange Glen High School English Department is dedicated to providing students with a high quality, in-depth study of the field of English-Language Arts. Students study classical and contemporary literature, writing techniques and speaking and listening. With an emphasis on skills mastery, OGHS students work to improve and master their skills in several writing and speaking genres.
OGHS also has programs for students who may need extra assistance in their mastery of the English language. The READ 180 program provides a computer based, scientifically proven program which dramatically improves reading comprehension, fluency, vocabulary and writing skills for students who are seriously below grade level in English.
The English 9 Intensive program also uses READ 180 technology to provide an enriched, fully supported learning environment for students who are slightly below grade level in English, and need extra support to succeed in their English 9 class.
English Language Development classes provide intensive English language training for students learning English as a second language. Sheltered English classes provide continued language support for English Learners, while giving students a rigorous education in the core English class.
If you have questions about the OGHS English Department, please contact your child's teacher, or one of the department chairpersons.
