Commack Middle School’s World Languages program is designed to promote success for all of our students, and to better prepare them for the changing demands of life in the 21st century, through the infusion of the philosophy of the International Baccalaureate’s Middle Years Program. The MYP has been devised to guide students in their search for a sense of belonging in the world around them. It also aims to help students develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need to participate actively in a changing and increasingly interrelated world.
Within each course of study, topical activities are aimed at supporting students’ efforts to utilize a language other than English for communication. Through the presentation of varied topics, we nurture students’ abilities to become independent learners who possess an enhanced understanding of the perspectives of people from other cultures.
