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?

Language courses are not leveled at the Middle School.  Anyone who yearns to learn a new language has an opportunity to do so.
