As World Language teachers, we prepare our students to communicate within and contribute to a global society. Our focus is not only on language proficiency but also cultural competence.

“A language is not just words. It's a culture, a tradition, a unification of a community, a whole history that creates what a community is. It's all embodied in a language.”

- Noam Chomsky  

   We Still Live Here: Âs Nutayuneân (2011)

As Fine Arts teachers, we strive to cultivate students who create, perform, produce, and respond, while also connecting with self, society, culture, and history.

“The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world.”

― Elliot W. Eisner
