World Language Department

  • Students enrolling in an international language class are empowering themselves to seek understanding of cultures and peoples in our local and world communities. It is imperative that all students have the opportunity to develop language proficiency and cultural skills in other languages in order to function successfully in the 21st century. Students are offered the opportunity to meet new employment demands created by growing international travel and commerce by staying in the international language program throughout their high school career.
