World Language Curriculum
The knowledge of a foreign language is a universal tool that opens gateways to human understanding and presents a new approach to dealing with the everyday realities of life. The study of a foreign language and the culture for which it is the vehicle sensitizes students to the reality of cultural differences and similarities. Thus, a full and rich experience in the learning of a foreign language develops an understanding of and appreciation for people of differing cultures.
We believe that the study of a foreign language plays an essential role in the intellectual development and total enrichment of the individual. Furthermore, foreign language study contributes to the fulfillment of academic, vocational and/or personal goals.
Consequently, students should be provided the means to pursue foreign language study to the extent that their interests and abilities permit. An effective world language curriculum recognizes individual differences in learning patterns and abilities and tailors courses to students with diverse needs and interests. Thus, we endeavor to provide a comprehensive and coordinated Spanish Curriculum that is a rewarding and satisfying experience for each learner.
