“We read to know we are not alone.”  C.S. Lewis

We, the teachers of Grayslake North High School’s English Department, challenge our students to grow as skilled communicators, critical readers, and increasingly independent learners.  Equally important is our commitment to fostering students’ confidence, integrity, and responsibility, encouraging them to use their voices to participate meaningfully in the world.
