English

At Villa Duchesne girls learn to write well. One hundred percent of our seniors are ready for college-level work in English (compared with only 73 percent in the state and 66 percent in the nation). The cornerstone of the Villa Duchesne English program is the individual writing conference. Each student meets individually with her English teacher an average of six times per year to conference her writing. Each student revises her work so that she can submit a new composition, based on the discussion in conference and the completed editing changes, for a second grade.

"My daughter gets into the car with the widest grin on her face every day.  I asked about it last night, and these are her words, 'Mom, at my school, even the announcements are fun!' Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
