World Languages is now a requirement for graduation for grades 9 – 11
“One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way.” ‒ Frank Smith
“Learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about things” – Flora Lewis
The World Language Department is committed to preparing our students to meet the challenges of living in multicultural and multilingual societies, as well as to succeed in the global work environment. To learn other languages and to appreciate other cultures will not only increase future career opportunities, but also prepare students to communicate efficiently in a changing world. Critical thinking, creativity and essential skills will be fostered in our students through learning World Languages.
Important Note: native/near native speakers may not take non-native courses in their mother tongue.
