Modern Languages Department
The Language Department serves to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to authentically communicate in a foreign language through development in reading, writing and oral communication in either French or Spanish.  Through these exercises students develop their skills further with each year of study, eventually gaining the ability to communicate comfortably in their language of choice.  Students entering in grade 8 must complete up to and including French 10.
