World Languages

The Department of World Languages offers Spanish and Chinese as modern languages. World language study is recommended by all colleges and required by many. Additionally, communication in another language is especially important considering today’s global economy and the need for competent language skills in a diverse job market. College bound students shall plan to take a minimum of two (2) years of a world language. Those pursuing the Academic Honors Diploma shall take either three (3) years of one language or two (2) years each of two different languages. Students who fail the first semester in each level are ineligible to take second semester World Language classes. Students are not allowed to take upper level classes unless they pass the lower level classes.
