Foreign Language

The 5th Grade program is a smorgasbord, where students study a trimester of Spanish, French, and Mandarin Chinese. The goal is not for students to become fluent in any of the languages but to expose them to three of the four languages they will be able to choose from when they enter 7th Grade. The time spent learning Spanish, French, and Mandarin Chinese provides them an introduction to basic vocabulary and culture. During 6th Grade all students study Latin.
