28 General Information If a student starts taking French or Spanish in Middle School, they can reach the 5AP level their senior year. If not, they can reach level 4 Honors in Spanish and French. Students need at least 2 years of a language to fulfill the graduation requirement. Level 3 Honors (or higher) of any language are Merit courses.

29 Why take a language? Generally, students who take four years of language are our most well-rounded and accomplished students. Studying a second language contributes positively to listening and communication skills, cognitive skills, and higher order thinking skills. Students who study a second language perform better on the verbal portion of the SAT.

30 Why take a language? There are travel and study abroad opportunities.
Many universities look for an applicant with 4 years of language, some require it. It shows dedication to an academic program! 2 years fulfills the graduation requirement It is a fun and engaging learning experience!

31 Why take a language? World Language Honor Societies (Spanish and French) Gives the opportunity to appreciate and learn about other cultures.

32 Heritage Learners Heritage language learners are students who:
Are raised in homes where a non-English language is spoken; Speak or merely understand the heritage language; Are to some degree bilingual in English and the heritage language. Students who wish to study their heritage language in high school have the opportunity to take a placement test to determine in which level of the language they should be placed. This applies to the languages offered in the Catalog of Approved High School Courses.
