Department Mission:
 The English Department of the John D. O'Bryant School of Mathematics and Science
 utilizes a student centered, college preparatory program of study, which integrates
 language, literature, research and composition. Through the exploration of literature and
 expression, students develop critical thinking skills. Our graduates possess an
 appreciation for literature, as well as an ability to communicate their ideas effectively.

In line with O'Bryant student academic expectations, our students:
 Read and analyze literature appropriate to their grade level
 Develop and use critical thinking skills about literature and issues
 raised by literature
 Express ideas effectively in writing
 Express ideas orally with clarity
