Overview of Foreign Language Department

The Foreign Language department offers the opportunity for all students to pursue the study of French or Spanish.  This is a vibrant program that includes not only vocabulary and grammar, but culture, music, art and history.  It is a demanding and fast paced approach to the study of a language incorporating hands on activities, oral communication, and integrated reading.


As a department we offer all levels of Spanish: Spanish I, II, III Honors, IV AP Language and V AP Spanish Literature.  We also offer French I, II and III Honors.  For students who already have a background in Spanish we offer Spanish for Native Speakers I & II.
