    Mission:

    It is our mission to promote fluency in a second language to help prepare students for future learning, living and careers in an increasingly globalized society. 

    Vision: 

    To help us to achieve our mission, we hope to provide our students with an education in a second language that can develop an appreciation of other cultures, lead to greater personal fulfillment and enhance intercultural communication in a pluralistic society.  

    Core beliefs:

    * We believe that all students can learn & be successful in acquiring a second language.  

    * We believe in providing students with a variety of educational opportunities to explore other cultures.

    * We believe in making curricular connections with other disciplines. 

    * We believe in working towards proficiency-based instruction & assessment, guided by best-practice standards.

    * We believe in providing our students with an abundance of comprehensible input, which must precede output.

    * We believe in working towards classroom instruction that is in the target language for 90% or more of the instructional time.
