World Languages

Welcome to the website for the World Languages Department of the Needham Public Schools!

In Needham every student has the opportunity to become proficient in a world language.  Students now begin their study of a world language in first grade and continue through middle school and high school.  We offer Spanish in the elementary schools, French and Spanish in the middle schools and French, Spanish, Latin and Mandarin at the high school.  On this website you will find links to information about choosing a language, course descriptions for the middle and high school, teacher websites and activities outside of the school day.
