World Language Department
We live in a constantly changing, multi-national world which is becoming smaller every day. Cultivating international understanding through effective communication not only helps to create more opportunities for students, it also increases understanding and connections that cross countries and cultures. To this end, t he World Language department strives to inspire students to become productive global citizens who will communicate in other languages and become invested in exploring other cultures through comparisons with their own language and culture. Instruction will help students develop the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing within a cultural context and apply their learning through authentic tasks.

Course offerings provide students the choice of learning a classical (Latin) or modern (Chinese, French, Italian, Spanish) language. Students will be challenged to explore the real-world application of the language studied and to continue the development of their language skills. The World Language Department invites and encourages students to take more than 1 language at a time while continuing their studies throughout their high school year.

Courses may not run if there are not sufficient student requests.
