Our foreign language courses enable students to communicate in the language while learning about other cultures. Students are prepared with the goal of earning a high school credit at the end of 8th grade, and Mason Prep students perform very well on the National French and Spanish Exams.
Mason Prep offers Spanish and French. In grades K-2, students take a semester of Spanish and a semester of French. At the end of 2nd grade, students choose to continue with either French or Spanish.
Our foreign language program centers around the National Standards for Foreign Language Education.
