• Dear CHS Parents and Students:

    Happy pumpkin season! We just wrapped up the first quarter of the semester and continue to work with students to complete all reading and writing tasks.

    Grades are not final till the end of the semester in December. Make sure you are keeping up with your school assignments to stay on track towards graduation and eligible for sports.

    Learning for all students is our first priority. Our lesson plans use StudySync curriculum by McGraw-Hill Education that is vetted to meet the state requirements for appropriate rigor, universal access, equal access, integrated ELD, differentiation, anti-bias, and anti-stereotyping education.

    The English Department is firmly committed to the academic success and social-emotional well-being of our students. 

    If you need to reach an English teacher, email is usually the easiest way to contact us given our busy teaching schedules. We will always strive to respond to parents and guardians within 48 hours to address any concerns.

    All the best,



    The Cordova High School English Department
