English

In the District 86 English Department, we strive to build safe and inclusive communities of learners who value diverse perspectives. Our students will graduate from our English classrooms able to communicate in writing and in speaking, with both passion and civility; to read a variety of texts accurately, for pleasure and with purpose; to appreciate the beauty and power of language; and to research with a critical eye. Our students should see reading and writing as ways to discover more about themselves and their worlds. We provide equitable opportunities to prepare students for college, careers, citizenship, and personal growth.
