English Department

The goal of the English Department is to light a fire in the minds of our students and teach them how to express what is inside well. We recognize the changing face of communication and strive to embrace the new, while never abandoning the classic.  As language is at the core of all education, the study of how to decode it, utilize it and present it is fundamental to success in learning.  To this end, the Department is committed to providing our students with the opportunity to read various types of text, from literary to informational, to write in an array of formats and to demonstrate a command of the language through presentations incorporating speaking, inquiry, and reflection
