The Spanish program at High Meadow is reflective of the school’s independent, creative approach. Through relevant curriculum and extracurricular opportunities, we encourage community wide appreciation of Spanish language and culture both locally and globally.
In the early grades, students develop an ear for the sounds of the language as well as a positive relationship with speaking and listening through songs, games, and literature.
In later grades, we introduce formal language learning through direct instruction, literature, research, and project work.
Our goals are for our graduating students to:
be able to express their opinions, thoughts, feelings, and ideas with reasonable, age appropriate ease in the target language.
be able to identify the history and geographical realm of Spanish speakers.
possess an awareness of Spanish culture and its impact on and relevance to the rest of the world, but particularly in the United States.
