Proficiency in more than one language is a valuable skill in an increasingly interdependent world. The skills and strategies acquired through world language study open doors to greater opportunity and cross-cultural understanding. By examining other languages and cultures, one gains a deeper insight into one’s own culture and a better understanding of oneself.

World languages are available in middle school as follows:

  • Spanish: grades 6-8 at North View Middle School; grades 7-8 at Brooklyn Middle School, Maple Grove Middle School and Osseo Middle School
  • French: grades 6-8 at North View Middle School; grades 7-8 at Maple Grove Middle School

Spanish and French are available at all comprehensive high schools, grades 9-12.
