English Department

The Mountain Lakes High School English department is committed to helping students develop critical thinking skills applied to reading, writing, listening, speaking, and media analysis. We prepare our students to contend for what they believe and make a positive impact on a world crowded with conflicting messages and ideas. We focus on close reading, reflective and precise writing, and respectful discourse. Students will communicate effectively, collaborate thoughtfully, and solve problems creatively with sensitivity to diverse perspectives. While we believe in studying an established canon of literature and providing our students with a strong foundation in traditional writing skills, we are constantly reviewing and refining our curriculum to respond to emerging technologies, to serve the changing needs of our students, and to align with developments in curriculum standards.
