The English Department offers students a solid college preparatory program built around a strong emphasis on written communication.
Classroom time is devoted to engaging each student in a community of discourse through reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Critical thinking is fostered and encouraged as students develop an appreciation and understanding of both classic and contemporary literature.
Within both the college prep and honors courses, students approach literature as a means to explore our world and communication as a tool to express perceptions of that world.
