Modern Languages

Our Philosophy:

The Foreign Language Department is committed to promote excellence and innovation in teaching Spanish, French, Japanese, German, and Chinese, and to assess varied learning needs of our diverse student body.

Our main goal is for students to become proficient in a target language, upholding the national standards for foreign language learning in the 21st century.

We believe that every language is the pathway to global respect and cultural understanding. We teach the students to discover and make themselves a better person in the global community, through embracing open communication and making the students feel welcome.
