English Language Arts

Mission:  Students will be critical consumers and creators of ideas who read, write, listen and discuss to enhance their understanding, evidence-based discourse, curiosity, capacity for empathy and problem-solving skills.

Vision: Our students are inquisitive, respectful, open-minded readers and listeners who write and communicate articulately and respectfully.  Thriving both independently and collaboratively, they are driven by the value and power of language in all its forms. 

Values: In order to develop students who enjoy and value the power of words, we provide differentiated opportunities for them to grapple with and respond to complex quality text, practice respectful discourse, and engage in independent and collaborative work.
