Welcome to the English Department!

The English Department at Ridge Community High School strives to provide our students with a comprehensive and challenging curriculum that prepares students for the challenges of tomorrow.  Our students are challenged to think critically, creatively and realistically.  Students are faced with real world application and processing information. 

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.” 

J.D. Salinger,
The Catcher in the Rye
