The King Philip World Language Department is committed to providing a safe, respectful learning environment for all students. Through the process of second language acquisition students will communicate effectively in the three modes of communication (interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational) using curriculum aligned with ACTFL standards.
Additionally, students will demonstrate an understanding of cultures and grow in their awareness of both themselves and the world around them. Students will learn to access another culture on its own terms, thus enabling and stimulating students to begin the lifelong process of increasing their critical understanding of that language’s culture, its place in the world at large, and by comparison, their own culture’s place in that 21st century world.
The standards, expectations and enthusiasm of the members of the department will encourage a deep respect for learning in all students.
