The English Department is committed to the development of the reading and writing skills of all high school students with our standards-based curriculum and the teaching of narrative, informational and persuasive modes of writing. Reading is the single most important factor in determining a student’s language capacity, significantly improving oral and written communication skills. To this end, the English Department is committed to an independent reading program in efforts to instil a life-long love of reading. The English Department is also committed to the writing process in an effort to ensure both best practice and best outcomes in the development of student writing.
