"Hopefully, a Canterbury student can articulate why English is the one course required for four years. It takes the length of their high school tenure to master the complexities of writing and speaking correctly. Whether or not their future lies in the field of English, they recognize that the skills mastered during their school career will be of the utmost importance in any career they may pursue. But more importantly, reading and studying of literature hold paramount importance."
Mr. David Hamway, Upper School English Teacher
