Home of the Mustangs!



​​The language program aims to enable students to communicate,read and write in the target language and develop an openness to cultural diversity. Students can take French and Spanish all the way to Grade 10. In Grade 10 students can choose between French 10, Punjabi 10 or Spanish 10.  In grade 11 students can choose from French 11, Punjabi 11 and Spanish 11  and then French 12/Punjabi 12 and Spanish 12. Students can check in with course teachers to check pre requisites for senior courses.

Acquiring a language is a life- long process.

Sharing our feelings, opinions, and beliefs in a new language contributes to our identity

With increased language proficiency, we can discuss and justify opinions with clarity.

Experiencing the creative works of other cultures helps us develop an appreciation of cultures worldwide.

Proficiency in a language allows us to understand global issues and explore opportunities for careers, travel, personal growth, and study abroad
