At C.V.D.C.S., we are committed to providing students with a wide variety of learning opportunities. Our goal in the English Department is to encourage students to enjoy the study of English, while helping them to develop the reading, writing and creative thinking skills needed in academics and the workplace.
We strive to make the English classroom fun and hope that students embrace reading and writing in their daily lives. In addition to studying the classics, we also integrate current issues, media, technology and contemporary texts in order to make learning more meaningful and relevant for our students.
