World Languages Department
We offer a challenging curriculum in Spanish, French and Latin on multiple levels for all four years that students can enroll in World Languages courses. Our courses are designed to educate students about other cultures and languages; more than that, though, our courses are designed to mold our students into better people.
As language and communication are at the heart of the human experience, our World Languages Department provides students with the tools to communicate in a second language. All of our courses expose students to the varied cultures of the people who use the language they are learning, and they are taught to respect and appreciate cultural differences.
Our goal is to have students develop competence to communicate effectively and interact with cultural competence. Additionally, we strive to establish an inextricable link between communication and culture which is applied in making connections and comparisons and in using this competence to be part of a global community.
