All students in grades 5-8 have the opportunity to take Spanish at MPMS.
Students are exposed to the basics of the Spanish language, a variety of cultural components and other important concepts. 5th graders meet weekly while 6-8th grade students meet for 6 or 9 weeks.
8th grade students also have the option of taking High School Spanish for credit. Students take the class all year for 42 minutes and the expectation is that the class is taught with the same rigor as Spanish I at the high school level to prepare students for Spanish II as a high school freshman.
