World Languages in District 11 are a way for students to follow the path to a bigger world. Research shows that learning a second language improves students’ overall academic achievement in school. Fluency in another language can open the doors of opportunity in business, travel, and quality of life in general! Our high schools offer Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Latin, and Spanish, as well as a class aimed at improving the skills of native Spanish speakers. Most middle schools offer classes to introduce students to new language and cultures, and some offer full year study.
District 11 also offers Spanish at two elementary schools.
