• Honors English 1

     

    The Honors program at Steele provides students the opportunity to get a "taste" of advanced courses and rigor.  Students are expected to follow through on their responsibility by participating in class and completing assignmetns and submitting them on time. This is a fast-paced course that is structured somewhat like a college course in that independet work is expected, outside reading is expected, and advocating for oneself is highly encouraged.
