There is so much room for self-expression in UPrep's English classes. The choices that students make about what they are interested in reading, how they hear stories, and the way they share or speak is unique to each person. I love the freedom they have to create stories in their own voices. That self-expression and insights from students makes every single day new." –Carrie Niebanck, English Department Chair

Our Middle School English program fosters the imagination of young writers while exposing them to traditional literary elements. Students practice the fundamentals of composition through pre-writing, drafting, revising, and publishing. The English Department encourages students to develop both self-awareness and personal style through the writing process.
