    Studying a second language promotes a greater understanding of cultural diversity among people. It can enhance the vocabulary and grammar of your own language, help improve your memory and even help you excel in your chosen future career. Besides promoting greater cultural awareness and appreciation, the foreign language program at the middle school will assist students in the study of their selected language beginning in seventh grade.  The program of studies will concentrate on gaining competency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. The program can eventually lead to an advanced seal of biliteracy in Italian or Spanish on your high school diploma.

    Detailed information about the Foreign Language program can be found in the Curriculum Guide (pages 11 & 12).
