The Elementary Spanish program provides students with exposure to essential language components twice a week through songs, stories, games, and role-play. Upper Elementary students expand on this knowledge through short stories, comics, and Spanish language media, learning to translate sentences, conjugate verbs, and engage in basic conversation. In addition, all students learn about the rich diversity of Spanish-speaking countries and cultures around the world.


In Middle School, students have Spanish daily. They read authentic Spanish literature from a variety of Spanish-speaking countries to grasp academic vocabulary and grammar. Their conversational Spanish vocabulary is increased through discussions and writing activities. Our students learn to apply isolated grammar conjugation to reading, comprehension, and writing. These skills prepare our students to advance in fluency and conversation.

The Barnhart Spanish program prepares our students to be competitive at the 9th-grade level and some register for an advanced Spanish program in high school.  


Each year our 7th grade students learn to make tortillas from scratch as part of our          Spanish curriculum.
