York Community High School Home
World Languages Department


The World Language Department at York believes that practical language use is our most important goal. We design our courses based on the belief that all students will be able to communicate in the target language from the beginning of their studies. Students are guided to use the target language in real-world contexts through a variety of carefully selected classroom activities.
