The curriculum of the World Languages Department supports the mission of Enfield High School. Our department recognizes that the ability to communicate in a second language is a desirable, if not essential, goal for all students.  Guided by a proficiency-based approach to instruction, the department supports the acquisition of a second language as a life skill for all students.  Embedded in our World Language curricula are lessons that teach students to:

  • Express ideas in both verbal and written modes 
  • Demonstrate an awareness and appreciation of language, culture, media, and the arts 
  • Use multiple resources and technologies 
  • Recognize multiple perspectives while acknowledging individual’s rights to opinion
