We believe all students should be challenged, regardless of their ability, and smaller class sizes allow for more attention paid to individual needs of students. Regardless of the specific assignments in the English classes, the curriculum is centered upon and driven by the needs of the students, thus increasing interest and assuring that all students are challenged by their work. This individualization is achieved through a variety of activities such as cooperative learning, authentic experiences, and independent learning activities.
All members of the department consistently juxtapose themes of morality and basic human decency from classic literature to the lives of our students so as to promote the idea that all people, especially those who have the means, must be responsible for and help those who do not have the basic necessities of life.
