La Reina's English curriculum is unlike any other in the area. Students read Shakespeare every year, grades 7 – 12. Through this program, students learn not just the classics, but also the value of doing close reading of difficult literature.
La Reina is also the only school in the area to require regular writing practice. La Reina alumnae routinely report - regardless of their profession - that the writing skills they learned at La Reina have helped them advance in their careers and contributed to their confidence as communicators.
