Program

The study of a world language is an extremely important part of a high school education.  It provides a point of entry into ways of thinking and living different from those which the student already knows. It also develops communication skills which will be useful in whatever career the student may choose to pursue.  Student placement at the high school will be made in consideration of achievement and recommendation from the school the student previously attended, and students are encouraged to continue the study of their chosen language through their four years at Greeley.  Student placement may be re-evaluated, if needed.  Students also are encouraged to consider starting a second world language at some time during their high school career to give added strength to their program as well as to broaden their knowledge base.
