World language offerings start in grade 8 where students may choose to begin learning 1 of 5 languages: Mandarin, Latin, German, French, or Spanish. Also, as in all grades in the district, special education and gifted education services are provided and options can be discussed for students who need customized education plans.

Chalk Talk: Tactile Learning
The age old question: book learning with a lecture? Or experiential and tactile learning? Some schools focus on one or the other while other schools try to incorporate both. But what is tactile learning? What is experiential learning? Using “non-conventional” methods to teaching testable content is becoming more and more accepted in the world of English as a Second Language as well as other fields. Educators are learning that, at least with some topics, many students respond better to activities where they experience a concept with an intro activity followed by a very brief teaching on a single concept. This is then followed by an application of that concept with another experiential activity. In this way, students are allowed to learn the content, but it is more through guided discovery as opposed to direct teacher centered teaching. This process allows students to take some control of their learning. This is one method of tactile or experiential learning although there are many others.
