In accordance with NYS Education Department's recommendations for an integrated curriculum, Northport's well designed and comprehensive program enables students to use language to gain information, discover meaning, make critical judgments and evaluations about texts, formulate viewpoints and arguments, discover the value of reading, writing, and thinking critically, and explore issues of human experience that affect the quality of life.
