The English program is designed to enhance students' love of reading and make the connection between literature and life.  Students will also be given the opportunity to improve their abilities to read non-fiction text.  All courses target the New York State Language Arts Standards of Excellence and integrate strategies in reading, writing, listening, and speaking.  The English Department is dedicated to the achievement of excellence and is continually introducing new fiction and nonfiction selections to enhance our students' appreciation of classical and contemporary literature.

To address the diverse interests, needs and abilities of our students, the English program offers a wide range of required and elective courses.  Students must earn four credits of English over the course of their high school careers, and they typically earn one credit each year.  Students in grades 9 and 10 will study the richest and most rigorous coursework we have to offer in English 9 Honors and English 10 Honors.  In the 11th grade students will choose from English 11 or International Baccalaureate English HL (year one). Grade 12 course selections include International Baccalaureate English A1, HL (year two,) Syracuse University Project Advance (SUPA): Writing, and English 12.  Students may also choose to apply for acceptance in electives such as Creative Writing and Talented Writers
