English Language Arts Department
“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”
he Celia Cruz Bronx High School of Music’s English Department offers three rigorous levels of instruction: college prep, honors, and Advanced Placement. During their four years of high school, students will read a variety of classic and contemporary texts, both fiction and non-fiction. The staff challenges students with various writing assignments, projects, presentations, and performances. The English Language Arts Department has worked closely with all of the other subject areas to create a balanced, cross-curricular approach to teaching literature and language arts skills.
