Vision 

To empower all students to become life-long learners

Mission

The Foreign Language Department strives to educate students to:

  • become socially and morally responsible
  • communicate effectively in the target language
  • understand and celebrate cultural differences
  • become "global" citizens

Beliefs

  • Every student is capable of learning a foreign language.
  • A foreign language is a mean by which the student broadens his knowledge of the world by recognizing the products, practices and perspectives of different cultures.
  • Mastering a foreign language requires a daily commitment to academic excellence and life-long learning.
  • Highly effective teachers are essential for student success.
  • Heightening a student's awareness of the importance of cultural difference in the world prepares him/her to be a more successful world citizen.
