The World Languages Department encourages students to learn to communicate efficiently in another language, interpret cultural differences, and develop new perspectives. Students are given the opportunity to explore other parts of the world and learn about themselves while learning about others. The World Languages curriculum promotes language proficiency, global awareness, cultural curiosity, and a love for language learning. Students can choose to study Chinese, French, Spanish, or Latin.

Each school year brings me more joy. I may be a teacher, but I am also a student because I am learning so much from students and colleagues. I have found the fountain of youth. Working with young students and teachers keeps me open minded to new ideas. HW has become my second home.
