World Languages Department

The World Language Department offers a four- or five-year sequence in French, German, Italian, Latin, and Spanish. All students take four years of world language. An AP course is offered as the culmination of all five language programs. Every world language course includes some cultural or historical units. In the modern languages, the goal is to provide a balanced program of reading, writing, speaking, and listening comprehension.
