The Language Arts Department focuses on developing effective communicators and perceptive readers. The Faculty strive to help students build the communication skills necessary to succeed in a global community by offering a variety of programs designed to enhance students’ understanding of different forms of media and texts representing cultures from around the world.

9th and 10th grade classes integrate ideas and methods of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years programme. 11th and 12th grade students have the opportunity to study in the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme. Seniors also have an option to participate in the Advanced Placement Literature and Composition course. The Language Arts department also hosts two journalism courses, one that produces the school newspaper, The Raider’s Digest, and one that produces the school yearbook, RIHISCAN.
