English

The English Department at Divine Child High School works toward instilling strong reading and writing skills that will transcend their students’ high school years, into college, and beyond. We not only help students develop critical thinking skills in response to literature and other texts, but also coach them into recognizing how literature connects to the lives of people across time and space.

Additionally, we strive to foster writing skills that allow our students to showcase their mastery in crafting a position alongside strong evidence, analyze and reflect on themes found in both the canon and contemporary texts, and creatively explore the world around them through various modes of writing.
