World Languages for Spanish Speakers

Is Spanish already spoken at home? Why not enroll your child in the Italian or French class? Or if you prefer, why not consider a Spanish class for Spanish speakers?

Next school year (2022-2023), Marist High School will implement a class for students considered to be “Heritage Speakers” whose families speak Spanish.  An aptitude test is required to enroll in Spanish-speaking classes. No test is needed if you choose to enroll in Italian or French classes.
