Our Spanish program is an introduction to the language, culture, and traditions of Spanish-speaking countries. The main goal of our Spanish program is to achieve basic communication skills in Spanish. Emphasis is on oral practice, conversation, reading practice and elementary writing skills. Using the curriculum “Calico Spanish” and other different tools as a basis, students begin to build a Spanish vocabulary and an understanding of grammar.
Middle school students dive deeper into the fundamentals of the language. The combined 6th, 7th, and 8th grade curriculums are roughly equivalent to High School Spanish I. Along with the basics of the language, students also learn to appreciate the customs and culture of Latin America.
