Statement of Philosophy
Language and communication are at the heart of the human experience. Today’s learners must be linguistically and culturally equipped to communicate successfully in a diverse American society and abroad. We envision a future in which ALL students will develop and maintain proficiency in English and at least one other language.
Palo Alto currently offers instruction in the following languages: French, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, and American Sign Language. (German is offered at Gunn High School.)
