Yes. Currently, each student takes Spanish. In elementary, the Spanish program introduces the culture and the students learn color words, numbers, words to describe their clothing, foods, etc. High school students are required to take Spanish I and Spanish II.

In what grades do you offer music, art, physical education and a foreign language?

Students in grades 7-12 are able to choose art, music and journalism classes, among others, as electives.
