Foreign Languages at Rhodes
At Dr. Bessie Rhodes School of Global Studies, students have the option to learn two languages.
Mandarin and Spanish are taught as a 'special' one day a week, once a week for half a year in 1st-5th grade. Students switch half way through the year from one language to another. In 6th grade students have a daily class with one trimester of Spanish, one trimester of Mandarin and one trimester of advisory.
In 7th and 8th grade, there is a combination student choice/lottery where students choose which language they would prefer to concentrate on. The class is then every day for the full two years.
