OVERVIEW OF ENGLISH EDUCATION IN SDUHSD

SDUHSD offers a wide range of English Language Arts courses to students in grades 7-12. Students may take as many VPA classes as their schedule will allow, and prerequisites and department recommendations should be followed.

All students in grades 7 & 8 must take a grade level English course each year and may take additional electives or support classes.

All students in grades 9-12 must take a grade level English course each year as a requirement to earn a high school diploma from SDUHSD.  To apply to most four-year colleges, students must earn a C grade or higher in a minimum of one year of grade level English each year in high school.
