East Rockaway High School

English Department

The ultimate goal of the English Department of East Rockaway High School is to recognize the individuality of each student and to encourage each student to: (a) increase the student’s general intellectual capacity in order to achieve his or her greatest potential; (b) enhance the social and moral development; (c) generate greater self-awareness; (d) build responsibility and self-discipline, and (e) develop personal creativity, critical thinking, and self-expression.

The English Department offers a course of study, which will allow the student to apply his or her knowledge and skills effectively and appropriately. The student will learn to think critically, to listen carefully, to speak coherently, to read intelligently, and to write clearly. Ultimately, students will achieve college and career readiness through the focus on Common Core Learning Standards
