The World Language program serves to:

  • provide coherent and standards-based world language programming through research-based best practices, professional learning, and development of curriculum and assessments
  • provide students access to language learning, cultural literacy and global competency critical to college, career and community readiness
  • provide student access to a challenging and well-rounded education, inclusive of world language learning for all

World Language is a critical component of the MMSD Strategic Framework. Starting in the 2014-15 school year, middle schools and high schools will select focus areas around well-rounded curriculum which may include world language programming and access.

This focus supports the MMSD goal that every student has access to a challenging and well-rounded education inclusive of access to world language learning.  World Language educators are committed to supporting high quality language learning defined by this mission statement.
