Welcome to the Northern Valley Demarest English Department

The English curriculum of the Northern Valley Regional High School District attempts to develop the reading, writing, and researching skills of all of the district’s students through in-depth study of great literature and frequent writing practice. At each grade level, pupils are required to complete a research or critical paper to help them to gain facility in writing papers of length that integrate both primary and secondary sources. Moreover, classes at the college preparatory, college preparatory enriched, and honors/advanced placement levels meet the needs of all English students in the district.
