    Department Goal: 

         The goal of the foreign language department is to expose students to a language and culture in order to make them knowledgeable and active participants of a global society. Students will learn to use a second language for meaningful communication in both spoken and written form. The foreign language program exposes students to language as it is used in various real-life situations that students are most likely to encounter. Through foreign language study, students develop sensitivity to the cultural and linguistic heritage of other groups and their influence on our own, and are prepared to participate in a society characterized by linguistic and cultural diversity.

    The Multilingual Department is in the process of revamping and reforming our department's webpage.  Please check back frequently for new and important updates and information!

    Multilingual Education includes: 
    • bilingual education 
    • English as a second language (ESL)
    Daily small group lessons are expected at every grade level. Small group instruction provides opportunities for students to apply the skills they learn and for teachers to re-teach skills as needed.
