The English Department at Danville aims to teach students the fundamentals of reading comprehension; writing mechanics, craft and composition; analysis and criticism of literature; research and inquiry; and a love of literature.

Students will graduate with the understanding that literature and information comes in a variety of forms, from many places and for many purposes; that written and oral expression are skills of paramount importance; that words and ideas matter.
