The World Languages Department at Meadowcreek High School is dedicated to the improvement and expansion of the teaching and learning of Spanish and French. "Language and communication are at the heart of the human experience. [We] must educate students who are linguistically and culturally equipped to communicate successfully in a pluralistic American society and abroad. [We envision] a future in which ALL students will develop and maintain proficiency in English and at least one other language...(and) children who come to school from non-English backgrounds should also have opportunties to develop further proficiencies in their first language." - American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages
All students will emerge from the World Languages department with the skills necessary to communicate and make connections in the community.
Believing that language and communication are at the heart of the human experience and that we must educate students to be linguistically and culturally prepared to function as world citizens.
