  • Learning is a continuous process that doesn't happen overnight.

    In this class we strive to have a "Growth Mindset" when it comes to learning.


    Fixed Mindset: assumes that our character, intelligence, and creative ability are static givens which we can’t change in any meaningful way, and success is the affirmation of that inherent intelligence. 


    Growth Mindset: thrives on challenge and sees failure not as evidence of unintelligence but as a heartening springboard for growth and for stretching our existing abilities.

  • The Mission Statement for Our English Language Arts Students: 

    Our mission as Mountain Ridge High School English Language Arts students is to achieve higher level reading, writing, and critical thinking skills to be competitive and successful in the 21st century through collaboration and active learning.
