World Languages and Cultures

¡Bienvenidos and Paalam! Welcome to the Department of Foreign Languages where our CI Raiders are able to expand their repertoire of languages and cultural awareness while meeting college entrance requirements. Our Spanish and Tagalog language programs are offered for all levels including for beginning speakers, native Spanish speakers, and Advanced Placement Spanish.

English Language Learners are also served in native Spanish speaker courses in a three year program that incorporates reading and writing to become fully bilingual. Foreign Language utilizes hands-on language acquisition teaching strategies and the latest technology. Students interested in foreign languages outside the classroom have the opportunity to participate in the French Club, Spanish Club, Filipinx Club, and Folklorico.
