English Language Arts Course Content

  • The English Language Arts Department is dedicated to fostering student success by providing a solid academic foundation and maximizing intellectual potential in each individual within a nurturing yet academically challenging environment. Our mission is to develop and foster a life-long appreciation of the written word and to provide students with the critical reading, writing, listen- ing, and communication skills to be successful, productive, and caring members of our global society. Four years of English are required for graduation and all students must pass the Comprehensive English Regents administered in junior year. Every core English course offered at MHS or Ames requires students to complete a summer reading assignment.
