The mission of the Scappoose High School English Department is to promote literacy – specifically, the ability to read, write, and think critically. Students will be exposed to increasingly complex content and themes and they are expected to rise to the challenge.
Breadth: By graduation, students will have been exposed to a wide sample of the literary heritage of English speaking cultures.
Depth: By graduation, students will have been taught the skills necessary to look deeply into texts in order to discern more insightful meanings and connections.
The Scappoose High School English Department is expressly a college preparatory curriculum which aims to equip our graduates to compete and be successful through the rigors of college and beyond.
