OverviewMaybe you aspire to be the next great American novelist. Maybe not. But either way, one thing is certain: the ability to write well is both a necessity and an advantage.
Linfield is committed to producing skilled readers and writers who are able to think critically and communicate effectively, and the curriculum is designed to achieve that end, emphasizing analytical composition not only in English classes but across the various disciplines. We also give students the opportunity to challenge themselves further with two advanced placement English courses. In other words, we write a lot. But by continuously engaging in the process of thinking, writing, and revising, our students gain confidence and learn how to successfully use the written word to achieve their goals.
