Language and communication are at the heart of the human experience. The United States must educate students who are equipped linguistically and culturally to communicate successfully in a pluralistic American society and abroad. This imperative envisions a future in which ALL students will develop and maintain proficiency in English and at least one other language, modern, or classical. Children who come to school from non-English-speaking backgrounds should also have opportunities to develop further proficiencies in their first language.
North Syracuse Central School District offers instruction in French and Spanish in grades 7-12. Advanced courses are offered in the high school for optional credit at local colleges.
