English and Fine Arts


All students have a core English curriculum that they must complete during their four years at Rolling Meadows High School. As freshman, students take a course in Written and Oral Communication. During sophomore year, the focus shifts to World Literature and Composition. Junior year brings with it a choice between American Literature and Composition or Advanced Placement Language and Composition. Finally, senior year offers many options including Advanced Placement Literature and Composition, Creative Writing, Contemporary Literature, and Humanities (to name a few). We also offer a variety of Elective options including journalism, acting, and yearbook.

While students are only required to take a single Fine Arts course during their time at RMHS, they have the opportunity to take many more using their elective flexibility. The fine arts course catalog includes opportunities to explore drawing, studio art, sculpture, photography, chorus, band, and orchestra.

Students must earn a minimum of four units of credit in English and pass a course that meets the district's fine arts requirement to graduate from RMHS.
