LANGUAGE SCHOOLS

Multilingual Communicators

The languages we speak are as diverse as our multicultural community.  At SCIS, we recognize that native language fluency is an important predictor of overall academic success. To help meet the needs of our diverse learners, SCIS offers mother tongue instruction in Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Portuguese, and Swedish.

The majority of these language programs meet outside of school hours, while some are integrated into the school day. These mother tongue programs provide a context for students and families to develop friendships and celebrate cultural traditions.
