The World Languages Department provides instruction in the first and second year of Spanish, French, Latin and German. The department pursues excellence in the areas of speaking, reading, writing and listening skills while also exposing the students to the cultures in which the language is spoken. The department strives to develop students who are becoming culturally aware and who are ready to continue their language learning in high school.

Summative assessments occur at the end of teaching and include things like chapter quizzes, tests, projects, presentations, etc...
Formative assessments are assignments that happen during class where we check for understanding. It includes class work, homework, and daily activities.
