World Languages

World language study prepares students with the linguistic and cultural knowledge to better understand and connect with a diverse global community. Courses in French, Spanish and German build competency in reading, writing, speaking and listening, while incorporating cultural traditions, interactions with native speakers, and real-world situations. Advanced “College in the Schools” courses are offered in each language.
