PHILOSOPHY
The English department at Sparta High School is committed to preparing students for college and technical courses, careers, and lifelong learning.  We encourage students to challenge themselves by reading critically, exploring new ideas, and taking compositional risks in their writing.  Our program of study is designed to scaffold expectations based on the Common Core State Standards, culminating in an ability to analyze literature and informational texts with sophistication; to write fluent, effective prose; and to thoughtfully explore social and cultural issues as they arise in literature and in life.

FACULTY
Please visit our teachers' websites in September for detailed information on course descriptions, homework, and grading policies.
