World Languages

The World Language program provides students the opportunity to develop proficiency in a language in addition to English. Proficiency is the learner’s ability to understand, speak, read, and write the language within an authentic cultural setting. As much as is possible, the class is conducted in Spanish or French.

After the first year, a student’s vocabulary is adequate to express elementary needs and their efforts to communicate are comprehensive to a sympathetic audience. Each successive year builds upon the one before leading those students who continue their studies on into high school to be able to fluently communicate in the chosen language.
