The skills of reading, listening, writing, speaking, and presenting are the keys to literacy and to success in a career. Students become confident readers and writers through the use of all of these modes in a variety of combinations and relevant settings. A focus on the processes of writing provides students with the tools to think and communicate effectively.

SCIENCE

Science is a way of knowing, a process for gaining knowledge and understanding the natural world. Scientific habits of mind allow people, in all aspects of their lives, to deal sensibly with problems that often involve evidence, quantitative considerations, logical arguments, and uncertainty. Without the ability to think critically, it is difficult to evaluate the complex problems that we face everyday.

SCIENCE ELECTIVES

SOCIAL STUDIES

Colleges and universities expect all students to be familiar with concepts taught in year-long classes. Students should consider registering for AP level classes because of the college-level skills learned in these more rigorous courses.

WORLD LANGUAGE

As world boundaries continue to open,it is more important than ever that students acquire knowledge and skills to effectively communicate and interact cross-culturally. Many professions, be it in government, business, technology etc.,value and compensate bi-lingual and multi-lingual employees who help bridge communication gaps. World language classes focus on 5 competencies: communication, culture, connections, comparisons, and communities. Stu-dents develop a greater understanding, acceptance, and respect for the diversity of world culture. Most universities recommend two consecutive levels of the same world lan-guage in secondary school. The Regent's scholarship re-quires two consecutive levels of the same language. The World Language Sterling Scholar requires a world language course every year. Utah recently added a Seal of Biliteracy to high school diplomas.The Seal of Biliteracy will be awarded to a student who is proficient in English and one or more World Languages or the Indigenes Languages of Nava-jo or Ute.
