The primary mission of the district's World Languages program is to meet the educational needs of each student whose native language is not English (Bilingual/ESL) and those of English speaking students who are learning a language other than English (LOTE).
Bilingual/ESL - The program addresses three domains: the affective, the linguistic and the cognitive. The World Languages Department staff is responsible for updating the schools on legal requirements and program developments.
LOTE - The following opportunities are offered for secondary students to become fluent in a language other than English: American Sign Language, French, German, Latin, Spanish, and Spanish for Native Speakers. Opportunities for Advanced Placement college credit as well as the International Baccalaureate (IP) program exist. Two years credit of the same foreign language are needed for the recommended high school graduation plan.
