Modern & Classical Languages

Various models of foreign language programs exist in Gwinnett schools. At the elementary level, schools that offer foreign language provide an exploratory model in order to raise students’ awareness of other languages and cultures. At the middle school level, most schools offer introductory nine week courses in the Connections block, and more than half offer sequential one or two year programs that meet Level One Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) for the target language studied. These middle school sequential programs prepare students to enter Level II study in high school. Meadowcreek High School offers programs of study in the following languages: Spanish, French, & German.
