We hope to help students challenge themselves to do the following:
- read closely complex fiction and non-fiction,
- create well-supported, effective writing,
- speak and listen accurately and critically, and
- research with curiosity and skill.

The English department's policy on late essays and take-home projects is as follows:
1 day late: 75% credit
2 days late: 50% credit
3 or more days late: 0% credit
AP and Honors:
There is no requirement for enrolling in an AP or Honors class. If the student is willing to challenge himself or herself, that student is welcomed. However, if the student is not passing at the first grading period and is not fulfilling a teacher-student-parent contract, the student may be moved to a college-prep class. This policy is in place to ensure the integrity of the accelerated classes for those students advanced in skill and perseverance.
