The mission of the West Hartford World Language Department
...is to enable our students to communicate effectively in the target language, and develop an understanding of the cultures of the speakers of that language. As a result, students will enhance their ability to be responsible citizens in our global community.
West Hartford Public Schools is proud to offer language instruction from PK to 12th grade in diverse settings in all elementary, middle and high schools.
Charter Oak International Academy is a district-wide magnet school, and it is West Hartford's International Baccalaureate School. Students who attend Charter Oak receive Spanish instruction starting in Pre-K, and Chinese starting in Kindergarten.
In addition, all three middle schools offer now Spanish, French and Chinese as an option for middle school students.
During high school, students can select among Spanish, French, Chinese, Latin, Ancient Greek and American Sign Language.
