“We read to know we are not alone.” 

C.S. Lewis  

We, the teachers of Grayslake Central 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.
