Frequently Asked Questions:
I. What languages are offered at Wayland Middle School?
French, Latin, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese are offered at Wayland Middle school.
II. When do students sign up to take a language?
The majority of students make their language choice in March of their 6th grade following a school-wide celebration called World Languages Week. Those who are not yet ready to start a language at that time may do so in 8th or 9th grade.
III. Is signing up for a language in Middle School a 2-year commitment?
Yes. The beauty of starting a language at the middle school level is that Level 1 is broken down into Level 1A (in 7th grade) and Level 1B (in 8th grade.) At the end of this two-year study, students are ready for Level 2 at the High School.
IV. Is language instruction leveled?
Language courses are not leveled at the Middle School. Anyone who yearns to learn a new language has an opportunity to do so.
V. What is the criteria for recommending students to an Honors vs. a College Prep level course at Wayland High School?
To be recommended for an Honors level, students
must have an A average in Language at the MS with an A average of large assessments.
