Cooper IB students on Silver Platter Day

Welcome to World Languages

There's no doubt that the world is getting smaller, and the United States is more diverse than ever before.  Becoming proficient in a second language makes good sense - not to mention it's a requirement at most four-year colleges and universities!
In addition, students who study a second (or third or fourth!) language perform better in math and English, and on college entrance exams.  Further, becoming fluent in a second language will greatly help students once they enter the job market, and will also provide valuable education of other cultures - learning about a new community from the most important aspect - language and communication.
Robbinsdale Area Schools offers Spanish instruction at two elementary schools (Lakeview Elementary, as part of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme; and Robbinsdale Spanish Immersion School); and offers French and Spanish language instruction at both middle schools and both high schools.  Robbinsdale Armstrong High School also offers Japanese language instruction starting in grade 9 and Robbinsdale Cooper offers Ojibwe language instruction in grade 11.
Help your child discover new worlds!  Encourage a second language!
