About World Languages at EMS
At EMS, foreign language is considered an essential part of the learning environment and is necessary to prepare our students for a global economy.
Students engage with Spanish throughout their entire time with us, from our youngest learners in Chilton House to our growing leaders in middle school. In sixth grade and above, students may take advanced Spanish. Beginning in seventh grade, students have the option to further deepen their study of Spanish or to learn Latin. Seventh- and eighth-grade students participate in the National Spanish and Latin Exams and exhibit their deep cultural understandings in a culminating year-end project.
