Modern Languages

Middle-School-Modern-Languages
JAIS has a strong modern language department that offers French or Spanish. All middle school students, except for students enrolled in our ELL/LS program, are required to study a language throughout the year.

The modern language curriculum emphasizes core literacy skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking) and stresses instructional practices that encourage students to use multiple modes of discourse, frequently and authentically. Culture of the countries is also part of the program.
