Special Education
• We offer a continuum of services from self –
contained classes to consult services.
• There are currently 4 special education staff
members in the high school who teach, coteach classes and provide resource assistance.
• If your child currently has an individual
education plan (IEP) the special education
teachers will be available after the
presentation to answer questions.
World Languages
• “One language sets you in the corridor for life. Two languages open
every door along the way.” – Frank Smith
• Translators and Interpreters are expected to be one of the 15
fastest growing occupations in the nation according to the
Department of Labor.
• High salaries are available to translators and interpreters who
specialize in legal, medical, technical, or scientific knowledge.
• Once you learn one foreign language, it is easy to pick up other
languages. The more languages you know, the more job
opportunities you will have.
• Students are able to travel with our Spanish Club after three years
of Spanish. We have traveled to Costa Rica, Mexico, Puerto Rico,
and Spain. Our trips are homestay experiences meaning that
students will live with families while they are in the country in order
to fully appreciate the culture and the language.
World Languages
• UW- Madison and UW-Eau Claire require two years of a single foreign
language in high school for admission to their universities.
• Other schools strongly recommend two or more years of a single foreign
language.
• Many schools have a foreign language requirement within colleges or
depending on your major. I have more information on this for anyone who
would like to see specific schools in Wisconsin.
• In Spanish IV, V and VI, students will take the UW system foreign language
placement exam. The majority of our students place in the top two levels
which means that they can qualify for up to 16 retroactive credits if they
take one foreign language class in college and earn a final grade of A or B
(3 credit class + 16 retro credits = 19 credits for one class). One foreign
language class could take care of the majority of foreign language
requirements in most majors and save you thousands of dollars as well as
place you ahead of most of your peers in college for class registration and
for housing options.
• We recommend taking at least one Spanish class each year in high school.
