In today’s world of global education and computers being put in every child’s hand there is a definite need to speak more than just your native language. Students can become well rounded when it comes to communication with people from around the globe.
Foreign languages are taught as early as the 6th grade in the district with beginning French and Spanish and advancing further into these languages and their literature. There is a Pacing Guide that breaks down the classroom activities of the course.
