World Language

All four of our middle schools offer a World Language program as well as one of our elementary campuses, Sargeant Elementary.  Students have the opportunity to learn Spanish before they go to high school. Our RCSD World Language program uses the TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling) method of foreign language teaching.  This type of program is different from how many adults learned a foreign language when they were in school. “Our focus at RCSD is on comprehension and conversation.
