Foreign Language

Overview
We offer a variety of classes to ensure that our students are well prepared for a diverse world as well as ready for college. We focus on communication (presentational, interpretive, and interpersonal), culture, making connections to other disciplines, drawing comparisons between languages and cultures, and extending knowledge to the surrounding community. Taking pride in our work, students are held to high expectations inside and outside of the classroom.

Expectations
Foreign Language at Newton High School is held to high expectations, promoting student growth and a professional environment.

Expectations include...

  • Rigorous work in the presentational, interpersonal, and interpretive communication modes
  • Encouragement to be creative with the language
  • Creative use with technology to extend learning and use it to simulate real-world situations
  • Best practices, including immersion-like classrooms where English is used minimally, if at all.

We look forward to giving our students opportunities to grow not only with language, but as world citizens.
