Welcome to the English Department at KHS!
The core English program at the Keyport High School is a four-course sequence that encourages students to become actively-engaged, critically thinking persons in a complex, dynamic world. All English courses focus on the development of skills in reading, discussion, and questioning as well as the various forms of written composition. In each English class a wide variety of text is chosen to engage each learner and maximize their full potential. The English department at Keyport High School has done an outstanding job of aligning the curriculum to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards and balancing the resources in each class to reflect classic literature such as Lord of the Flies and contemporary texts such as Into the Wild to provide our students with a well-rounded, rich literary experience.
