WELCOME BACK!

The philosophy of the South Kingstown High School English Language Arts Department is that through the critical study of language, and by looking at literature in all its forms, students may better understand and contribute to the world they live in.  Ultimately, language is an essential means by which students explore and understand the "text" of  their own lives as well as the lives of others.  We seek to empower students to be life-long readers, writers, speakers, listeners, and critical thinkers.   Our purpose is to enable all students to develop the skills necessary to become effective communicators in our global community, and to use language fluently in all of its forms to enhance their lives and their community.
