The Department of World Languages welcomes you to Tom C. Clark H.S. Students are strongly encouraged to study Latin, French, German, or Spanish. Four-year selective universities often require a minimum of three years of the same language study at the high school level. Additionally, studying multiple years of the same language will demonstrate a determination these universities are often searching for during their admission process.
To attain the greatest benefit of the World Language program we offer classes in French, German, Latin, and Spanish. As Pre-AP, AP, and Dual Credit are options, GPA enhancement will be given for those students enrolled in Pre-AP or AP level world language course.
The study of World Languages, whether classical or modern, is an essential component in becoming a well-rounded learner in the 21st century. The study of a language other than English will heighten students' global awareness and will help them develop an appreciation of their immediate surroundings and beyond. Armed with the benefits of their adventures in the World Language programs at Clark, students will be able to make positive contributions to our society.
