Welcome to the FLES and World Language Department!
The World Language Program supports the mission statement of the Greenwich Public Schools by striving to educate our students to their highest level of linguistic potential so that they may become capable, creative and responsible members of the global society.
World Language study in the Greenwich Public Schools works to equip students linguistically and culturally to communicate and function in a "flat world" both as individuals and within a group. World Language study develops an awareness of other people's views, an understanding of their unique ways of life and a recognition and respect for their diversity and contributions to the world at large. Linguistic proficiency combined with cultural knowledge will enable students to interact in a variety of real-life situations. Effective communication based on knowledge of language and cultures will be a key to success and prosperity in the 21st century.
