Are you entering the high school next year?

Many parents and students often wonder what the requirements are for the high school. If you or your child will be coming in as a freshman to Arlington High School next year, you will soon be asked to make your course selections. Teachers are an important part of this process, as they can advise students on the appropriate level of the course they should take (Honors? Curriculum A?). You should definitely consult with your teacher before making any course selections. The following is a general guideline for what to expect from your language courses in the high school:

World Language Requirements at Arlington High School:
Students at the high school level are required to take two years of the same language in order to meet the graduation requirement. Students are encouraged to continue with the language they are studying in the middle school. Teachers will make recommendations as to the level, but most students will be recommended for either level 2 Honors or 2 Curriculum A (see placement criteria). Students who are not currently studying a language in the middle school should choose to enter level 1 of any of the five languages offered at the high school: French, Italian, Latin, Mandarin, or Spanish. All students have the option of choosing an additional language as an elective.
