SPANISH and FRENCH

All Inclusive Middle School World Languages

Our new program is designed specifically for all middle school students who want to get an early start on acquiring a second language. Students begin their language studies in 7th grade with a year-long sampler of World Language courses (French and Spanish), and continue a single language course of study in the 8th grade (equivalent to a high school level 1 class).  Middle school students who successfully complete the program begin 9th grade in a Level 2 high school course. 

  • NEW!!! NO application or readiness test required prior to enrollment.
