World Languages

The world language department consists of Latin, levels 1-8, and Spanish, levels 1-8. Higher levels of language classes are enriched. World language students learn about history and culture through readings in English as well as the language being learned. Student clubs are available for both language studies, trips are taken to native lands and year-end banquets are held.
