    BENEFITS OF PRE-K & ELEMENTARY LANGUAGE STUDY 

           Young people are most open to learning about new languages and cultures.

    Early language study leads to long sequence programs and proficiency.

                              Starting early facilitates addition of more languages.

                              Language study helps children develop cognitive skills.

    MISSION: Through an exploratory study of world languages, students will gain a foundation for language learning in order to become familiar with a variety of cultures, thus improving their global awareness and appreciation of diversity. Upon pursuit of an academic or employment track, these building blocks provide the support for a strong future in a global society.
