Welcome to the English Department!
Our goal is to develop critical readers, writers, and thinkers who are able to comprehend, analyze, and respond to a text. We support our students to develop the skills and confidence to effectivley convey their ideas and experiences through both verbal and written expression.
We work collaboratively to horizontally and vertically align coursework. Each course is designed to increase rigor from one grade level to the next, while supporting and challenging students in acquiring new skills in the areas of reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
