At Glenn Arbour Academy students are challenged to think creatively and set the high standard of his or her personal best for their writing assignments.

A solid foundation of the knowledge and understanding of the basic writing skills is developed through our writing program. Students become confident writers expressing their ideas and opinions in the written form.

Frequent opportunities are made available to write for a variety of purposes, for example: poetry, creative stories, formal letters, postcards, and invitations.

The writing process requires the students to draft, review, revise, edit and proof read their work.

Teachers and peers continually monitor, provide suggestions, instructions and guidance to help students advance in their writing skills.
