The Redwood High School Law and Justice Academy seeks to improve students’ reading, writing, critical thinking, and speaking skills through an intensive academic curriculum that uses the law—its origins, purpose, use, and significant historical cases—as a framework to develop well-rounded, self-aware, community conscious and proactive citizens. The Law Academy’s highlights include:
- Strengthen our students’ academic foundation—We will improve our students’ ability to read for comprehension; to efficiently and appropriately conduct research and provide documentation and to be academically responsible.
- Develop our students’ ability to critically analyze social issues—We will rigorously interrogate historical events to build our knowledge of cause and effect. We will critique and analyze literature to deepen our understanding of the underlying messages of significant authors of law.
- Build our students’ capabilities as public persons—We will encourage, coach, and guide our students to become effective and confident speakers in public.
