       The mission of Kelly Walsh High School Language Arts Department is to prepare every student in the areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening by implementing research-based, best practices.

       The Kelly Walsh Language Arts department offers a wide variety of courses from basic english to college credit AP courses
The purpose and goals of the Language Arts Department are to make the basic communication skills of each student stronger. Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening are three major standards on which we focus; all of our course offerings require students to meet a balanced proficiency in those areas. The strength of our programs is that we have a very qualified faculty, all of whom bring something different to the department; yet each member of the department is focused on the task that they need to do and very dedicated to see that it happens. We also offer kids who are interested in journalism the opportunity to pursue their interest in that area and also we offer forensics and debate for students who want to advance their speaking skills, and who are interested in competitive debate.
