World Language

Knowing how to communicate in another language is an essential element of an excellent 21st-century education. Language is a cultural phenomena that allows us to guide students to discoveries of world cultures. To study a language is to gain insights into different global perspectives and to gain both knowledge and experience to become a leader in today’s world. Communication in a world language leads to possibilities to share work and ideas in the fields of science, math, music, art, history, literature, theatre, economics and so much more with others all over the planet. We strive to prepare our students to go anywhere, discuss anything and make significant contributions in both their personal and professional lives through the use of their language skills and their understanding of other cultures. Throughout our program language learning is supported by the ACTFL national standards of the five Cs: communication, cultures, connections, comparisons and communities.
