“The aim of education should be to teach the child to think, not what to think.”

The West Ashley English Department offers College Prep, Honors, Advanced Placement and Dual Credit courses.  Our English courses are aligned with the Common Core Standards which is a representation of what students are expected to know and be able to do as readers, writers, communicators, and researchers. 

Additionally our English Department affords students the opportunity to earn college credit with the Advanced Placement Language and Literature courses by passing the state exam that is given in May. Students who are interested in attending state colleges may be eligible to earn college credit through the Dual Credit course which is offered at West Ashley in conjunction with Trident Technical College.

“A great teacher never strives to explain his vision. He simply invites one beside him to see for himself.”
