Our Mission Statement
Language is the vehicle by which we express our individual and cultural identity in a global context. Through the study of languages, we gain an understanding and appreciation for the way other people live, their ideas and their impact on how we live, thereby fostering a greater sense of humanity.
The West Irondequoit World Language program provides comprehensive and rigorous study in languages other than English for all students. The program is committed to developing effective communicators who are intellectually curious critical thinkers. Students are purposefully immersed in frequent, authentic, student-centered experiences.
