 What costume would you wear to bring Greek Gods & Goddesses to life? Do you know how to analyze or draw a Graphic Novel? What would you say if you had to defend Victor Frankenstein at trial?  


The St. Joseph High School English Department presents students with a challenging curriculum that focuses on
reading, writing, and critical thinking skills. The goals of the English curriculum are to provide a four-year literature-based program to assist in the development of excellence in writing and speaking skills, learning to critically analyze challenging literature and original source texts, as well as building vocabulary and grammar skills. We employ 21st century technology to promote media literacy and to develop students who are prepared to meet their future academic and career goals in an ever-changing technological world.
