Our mission is to expose students to a wide variety of both traditional and unconventional literary influences
Build their genre literacy through exploration
English Department works with 3 key words: transformative, unique, and diverse.
We have a unique way of covering literature and literary expression; while essays may be the norm elsewhere, at Einstein, students can also express themselves through poetry, podcasts, music, videos, and even text-based digital games!
. A critical part of our English instruction model is providing inviting opportunities for verbal, written, and artistic interaction and expression, both independently and collaboratively.
Our English department also regularly transforms the halls through school-wide events, such as a Medieval Faire, The Land of Oz, and more. Express your passion with us and add your words to the annals of Einstein English!
Lower School English
The Einstein School English Department strives to provide its lower school students with a foundation of the critical elements for literary analysis and the key traits of successful writing. Our English teachers guide students through hands-on exploration of the various genres that they will encounter throughout their English studies and help students transition from Elementary-level comprehension to higher-level critical thinking. Our mission is to prepare students for advanced English classes by empowering them with ample opportunities for verbal, written, and creative expression and analysis.
High School English

Throughout all higher level English classes, teachers focus on enabling students to analyze literature and practice their critical thinking skills as well as refining their writing skills in anticipation of college-level English courses.
