The English Department
The English Department is dedicated to empowering students with the critical thinking and communication skills necessary to achieve success not only in their post-secondary educations, but also in their roles as productive members of the global community. Within the language arts classroom, students learn to express themselves in articulate, concise, and convincing language, garnering the skills for all forms of oral and written expression. In addition, students develop analytical abilities that will endow them with the means to comprehend nuances not only in text, but also in daily real-world experiences. They reflect on assumptions and biases as they are exposed to various cultures and opinions through literature and discussion. Our commitment is to develop literacy and promote a love of learning, equipping our students with the resources to become thoughtful, constructive members of society.
