Middle School Languages
Sixth grade students select one of four languages – French, Spanish, Chinese, or Latin – earning a half credit, with another half credit in 7th grade. Modern languages are taught to ensure the acquisition of correct pronunciation, intonation, and idiomatic usage. Courses stimulate interest in the cultural diversity implicit in studying a language other than English. Eighth-graders continue with level II of the language, following the same texts and curriculum as students in Upper School.
