The English program is designed to prepare students to learn how to communicate effectively, read critically, and write clearly. Students are enrolled in an English class each year and must successfully complete four years in order to meet graduation requirements. Our goal is to produce Washington High School students who have the reading, writing, and thinking skills necessary to become successful citizens in our global society.
