High School English Department
Students in NYS are required to successfully complete four years of high school English and pass the NYS Regents exam in 11th grade before graduating. Additionally, students must complete a Senior Research Project.
Our 9-12 program is vast and always improving. Currently, our department consists of 11 highly qualified teachers who have each been with the district for between 10-25 years. We are fully committed to supporting the district's academic standards and the Spartan Way. Our teachers strive to not only educate our students on reading and writing, but we also strive to enhance our daily lessons with real-world experiences which include character building opportunities. We consistently provide rich and diverse instruction by incorporating cooperative learning, meaningful technology use, and rigorous and multifaceted activities. Department members are committed to professional development in an effort to continually enhance our teaching practices. Please visit our individual teacher websites for more specific information on grade-level courses.
