Middle School students may choose from among French, Spanish, Chinese and Latin for their foreign-language instruction.
The programs emphasize oral and comprehension skills, with the target language accepted as the normal medium of communication in the classroom. Middle School students are also introduced to more complex grammatical concepts in written work. Cultural studies are an essential part of the Middle School modern languages program. Students take great pride in their evolving command of a foreign language, and their exposure to other cultures makes them more tolerant, more aware and more appreciative of the world around them.
