COVID-19 and Remote Learning Information

Due to Covid-19 circumstances, most of a student’s course loads are divided between two semesters. During one semester, a course covers the equivalent of curriculum from a full fall term and a full spring term for a total of one year of instruction. 

A student receives 2.0 credits per course (equivalent to 1 year of instruction.)

 

By offering our courses on a semester basis, we are supporting deeper and more focused learning. We offer more personalized support, without sacrificing time allotted to the course. AP courses have the equivalent of twice the amount of time to engage in the content and skills compared to years past. 

 

When college admission representatives review a student’s transcript, they review it holistically and with attention to student progress from year to year. Colleges review the courses a student takes in the fall as well as the spring semester of their senior year.

The World Languages Department is dedicated to motivating and expanding students’ ability to speak a language in addition to English. To achieve this, the department offers a complete language immersion experience. In order to build fluency, audio-lingual, student-oriented activities are used in every course. The department aims to prepare qualified students for the Advanced Placement class, which is offered in every language. Teacher and peer tutoring are available in all languages. Regents examinations are given after Level 6 classes (third year). All students must complete one year of a World Languages to graduate. Additional levels are offered for advanced students who demonstrate proficiency in the language.
