HSAS: Academics


english class

Students take four years of coursework in English, covering pre-Renaissance literature, post-Renaissance literature, Shakespeare, American literature, English literature, world literature, and modern drama. Ninth-grade students are required to take a course in research methodology. In all of our English classes, we emphasize the careful interpretation of literature and the development of college-level, analytic writing skills. Public speaking skills are integrated into the curriculum for each grade. Instruction is also provided in grammar, usage, and mechanics.

Faculty: Ms. M. Mosco; Mr. D. Murphy; Mr. A. Weiss; Ms. P. Wong
