Department Philosophy
  • Department Philosophy

    The Herricks High School English Program seeks to foster a learning community dedicated to the social and academic development of each student and to the professional development of each educator. We honor and respect each student as an individual with regard to learning process, ethnicity, and cultural experiences. Since language governs our lives, our program seeks to cultivate sensitivity to the art of written expression, to promote a life-long exploration of reading and writing, and to nurture active, independent, responsible learners through varied experiences in and out of the English classroom.
