About the English Department

The Ponderosa English Department offers courses of study designed to enlighten students and prepare them for college and the world beyond high school. In addition to traditional, required, year long courses, we offer an Honors English Program to students their freshman and sophomore years. In their junior and senior years, two Advanced Placement courses are offered: Literature and Composition and Language and Composition. We also offer courses accredited through Colorado University at Denver in Fiction and Composition. Further, students can choose elective courses in Creative Writing, Public Speaking, and Newspaper. In addition, we teach a wide range of composition skills for students of all levels. Like Henry David Thoreau, we believe one should read “the best books first."
