The English Department offers two levels of English: standard college preparatory English and honors English. Emphasizing book reading and expository writing, teachers at both levels prepare students to succeed in any college course requiring interpretive and composition skills. Honors English, a four-year sequence, also prepares students to write the College Board’s Advanced Placement examination in literature and composition. In honors English, students read more books, more difficult books, and write essays that demand the part-whole analysis typically required on Advanced Placement essay questions. Graduation requirement: 4 credits, must include English I, II, III, IV.




The Honors English Program: This four-year program provides a challenge for students who wish to advance their English skills at a more accelerated rate than that offered by the standard college preparatory program. Students should have an avid interest in literature, a sound grasp of the fundamentals of formal grammar, and the ability to write well-organized, clear formal essays. Students read approximately twice as much literature as those in the non-honors program and write more challenging essays. In addition, students prepare for the Advanced Placement Literature and Composition exam. Vocabulary and grammar remain an integral part of the program. Prerequisite: Admission into the Honors Program is considered throughout the academic year. Only those students who have their English teachers’ approval may be added to an honors roster. To qualify for approval, students must, in the opinion of their teachers, have both the work ethic and interpretive skills needed to succeed in Honors English.
