The mission of the World Languages Department is to provide an enriching and engaging environment to develop effective communicators in a second language through the use of standards-based instruction in one the following languages offered:

  • Chinese (Mandarin)
  • French
  • Japanese

This is accomplished by further developing reading, writing, listening and researching skills in the second language.  Another goal is to instill a greater awareness of the student’s own culture while encouraging an appreciation of the target language's culture. The department strives to provide rich world language experiences which will increase each students’ capacity to live, work and contribute to a global society.
