English Department

English Department Mission Statement

Quince Orchard High School’s English Department is committed to providing each student with an appreciation for thinking, reading, writing, speaking, and listening critically. We strive to develop our students into independent learners who can communicate effectively, read the world critically, examine various perspectives, and increase in empathy for others. Students will understand how the English curriculum drives their success in all aspects of their lives.

The English Department will encourage, model, differentiate, and scaffold students’ learning to meet them where they are. We will plan carefully to provide multiple opportunities to think critically, to make meaningful choices in their learning, and to experience a variety of perspectives.

Students’ demonstration of growth in reading and writing, real world application, and metacognition will prove the efficacy of our vision and pedagogy.  

The Writing Center: 

A Resource for Students to Improve their Writing.  Come to Room 234 at lunchtime for help from trained National English Honor Society tutors in the Writing Center. You can do it!  We can help!
