Reading connects us to the universality all humans share, linking us to people regardless of race, gender, socio-economic status, class, etc. In class, we read stories written by people whose voices are not typically heard. Then our students are connected to them, which is an important step in the process of becoming global citizens." –Mark Smith, English Teacher

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.
