English Department Mission Statement

You think your pains and heartbreaks are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who have ever been alive.  James Baldwin, writer (1924-1987)

The Natick High School English Department endeavors to equip students with the skills necessary for success in the 21st century.  Through their engagement with a rich and varied curriculum, soundly based in the Massachusetts English Language Arts Curriculum Frameworks, students will:
 

  • develop written and oral communication skills for creative, academic, and professional purposes;
  • enrich their understanding of literatures and genres of diverse periods and cultures;
  • strengthen their critical reading, analytical thinking, and problem-solving abilities;
  • broaden their understanding of and facility with the English language;
  • augment their research skills, using variety of media.
