We offer all levels of German (1, 2, 3, 4, AP/IB). The Honors option for levels 2 and 3 is now available. Students have the opportunity to take AP exams in German Language and Culture. Students who successfully complete four years of German and take the corresponding National German Exam will earn a special cord for graduation.
Why German? Because it is a global language that colleges recommend for business, science, technology, design, philosophy, music, and tourism. German is the second most commonly used scientific language in the world and the most widely spoken language in Europe. Our German Club and German National Honors Society offer various extracurricular activities: German National Week, Oktoberfest, Weihnachten, Student Exchange Program, and educational trips to Europe that lead to enriched language/cultural experiences. And you will stay with the same teacher for four years who has lived, traveled, and studied in other countries, providing a broad perspective on language acquisition and diverse cultures.
