English Department

Welcome to the English department! Our goals are to increase students' proficiency in reading and writing while fostering a love of language. We want our students to leave our classrooms with the ability to think critically, recognize reliable sources, and read between the lines to see the deeper meanings of texts.

Our students read a wide variety of literature and informational texts. We embed instruction on grammar and vocabulary to help our students become strong and eloquent writers. Our students produce different forms of writing from narratives to literary analyses to research papers.

We are passionate about what we do and are committed to helping our students develop their skills in language arts.
