• ¡Hola!

    Welcome to the Foreign Language Department of Riverheads High School.

    Department Philosophy:
     The foreign language department believes that all students can be successful language and culture learners; therefore,  they must have access to language and culture study that is integrated into the entire school experience.  Language and culture education is part of the core curriculum, as it enables students to develop and enhance basic communication skills and higher order thinking skills. 
    We also feel that competence in more than one language and culture enables students to communicate with other people in other cultures in a variety of settings, and allows all of us to look beyond our customary borders and develop insight into our own language and culture.  Language competency also allows us to act with greater self-awareness and to participate more fully in the global community and marketplace.
