Mission

The Richard Montgomery High School English department is committed to providing all students with language and literature instruction that will improve their critical thinking, reading, writing, speaking, viewing and listening skills. English teachers promote and encourage engagement with a variety of texts from multiple perspectives in order to refine every student's literacy and language skills. 

Vision

We want our student to: 

  • love reading 
  • use their imaginations 
  • follow their curiosity 
  • develop their own voices 
  • write clearly, persuasively, and  powerfully 
  • support their claims with persuasive evidence
  • recognize the power of language 
  • listen critically, think logically, speak eloquently 
  • question and challenge the status quo 
  • find and see themselves in what they read 
  • be engaged, empathetic, globally-minded citizens
