World Languages

world-lang

The World Language Department strives to create a global perspective among students at Northfield High School. This is achieved through rigorous coursework surrounding languages and their respective cultures. Through focusing on how language reflects the inherent identity of differing peoples throughout the world, we convey to students the importance of actualizing themselves not only in their home culture, but also comparing their identities to other cultures around the world.
