World Language Program Overview
The World Languages program in City Schools of Decatur (CSD) offers students opportunities to become proficient in languages other than English, thereby preparing them to participate more fully in the global community. Our vision is to have students communicating enthusiastically about a variety of topics and in multiple contexts while enriching their lives and preparing for a successful future. In order to accomplish our vision, world language instruction begins at the elementary level with the Spanish Program, expands to multiple languages at the secondary level through our IB MYP Program, and continues through grades 11 and 12, allowing students to be challenged and to reach advanced levels.
World Language instruction is provided in four languages, including Spanish, French, German, and Latin.
