English classes (required at every grade level) include the study of vocabulary, composition, grammar, and literature.  English I and English II students can select either Pre-Advanced Placement or on-level classes.  The curriculum choices for juniors expand to Advanced Placement Language or English III (on-level).  Seniors can take Advanced Placement English Language, Advanced Placement English Literature, or English IV.

All students in all grades must write a research paper.  Freshmen write an expository paper, sophomores and juniors write persuasive papers, and seniors research and compose a literary analysis of British poetry.  Students in English II and English III also participate in state-mandated End of Instruction Testing.

Additionally, Edmond Memorial High School’s English electives – creative writing, mythology, Shakespeare, and Native American literature – allow students more time to study their areas of interest and can also count toward the humanities credit required to graduate.

For students whose first language is not English, ELL classes are offered to all students in grades 9-12 to help them become proficient English language learners.
