Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!

Vision Statement

We believe that All students should learn or maintain at least one language in addition to English. We will continue to provide students with a well-articulated sequenced program that develops increasing levels of proficiency at each level of instruction. Furthermore, we will continually reflect and fine-tune the curriculum based on New York State and National Standards. Teachers who are well qualified in language proficiency, cultural knowledge, and teaching skills will be provided with the technological tools to further excite and maintain our learners.

 The Half Hollow Hills Department of World Languages boasts outstanding programs starting in grade six in:

Chinese (Mandarin), French, Italian and Spanish

Middle School: The regular foreign language sequence continues in grade seven. Students receive one unit of credit upon successful completion of Checkpoint A in grade eight after taking and passing the locally developed Checkpoint A assessment in world languages.

High School: The regular foreign language sequence continues in grade nine. Students receive three units of credit upon the successful completion of Checkpoint B in grade ten after taking the locally developed Checkpoint B assessment in world languages. Students who are enrolled in Advanced Placement (AP) courses must take the AP exams in French, Italian or Spanish.
