Upper Years (G8-G9)

New Horizons' Upper Years Writing program is designed for eighth and ninth graders.

In the Upper Year program, students begin the crucial transition from literal to symbolic thinking. This is a path of development that will serve them well as they begin to read classic works of English-language literature. At the same time, we introduce research skills and expect students to be able to build sustained arguments with well-supported factual evidence. Teachers emphasize the importance of organization and the revision process while honing essay proofreading skills.
