The SI English Department consistently performs at a high level on all national tests. In terms of AP, the Department has a two-fold philosophy which dovetails with the two different 英语 Exams.


SI does not teach an AP 英语 course, but the department believes that the general quality of all our students' ability is well measured by this exam. All Juniors whose PSAT score indicates a 75% likelihood of success are encourage to take the exam. The goal is:

  •    35% of the Junior class pass the exam


The Literature course is a senior elective. The goal for the 英语 Lit exam is a 90% pass rate.
