English Department

  • The English Department promotes high expectations in its courses so that students will learn to express ideas in an organized manner, both orally and in writing. Students will gain appreciation for traditional and current literature and value a free exchange of ideas in a group situation for learning.


    It is the intent of this department to have all students follow the sequential order of courses beginning with designated levels of English 9 through English 12.
