Our Curriculum

World Languages

The World Language Department offers courses in the Italian and Spanish languages and cultures. Spanish and Italian courses are designed to establish a link between communication and culture, which is applied in making connections and comparisons and in using this competence to be part of local and global communities.  Each level strives to develop student confidence in the oral and written expression of the language through real-life situations that would allow a student to confidently navigate life in the target language.
