World Languages

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 Pre-Kindergarten to grade 12 in all schools.
