Our school bases our esteemed Language Arts program on the renowned Journeys Language Arts Program, Writing Practice Program (WPP), and Word Voyage.
-The Journeys program provides a close reading routine and online tools to empower students to read rigorous texts.

This intricate program empowers students with skill mastery, inspires them with authentic, award-winning text, and builds their confidence in the skills they need for the future. Journeys K–2 earns an ESSA Strong Evidence rating from the Center for Research and Reform in Education at Johns Hopkins University. It is based on the latest scientific research of what makes literacy instruction effective and has shown positive academic gains.
