The GUHSD Language Arts curriculum is aligned to the Arizona State Standards and will prepare students for AIMS (Arizona's Instrument to Measure Standards). Students are expected to master specific outcomes at each grade level.

Samples of student writing for each of the outcomes are placed in a folder, which follows the student from 9th grade through 12th grade.  In the Language Arts classes, students focus on reading in a variety of genres and composition in the four strands of writing.
