An essential part of Preparing Students for Success in an Ever-Changing World is the acquisition of and appreciation for an additional language. Instruction in French for every age of Wilson students is incredibly beneficial in their academic development and gives them a strong foundation for their post-elementary learning, whether they continue in French or use their skills to learn another language. Taught by a native French speaker, our students gain not only aptitude for a different language, but also an appreciation for different cultures through a variety of hands-on activities and special experiences. Wilson students learn to embrace the richness of cultures across the world and discover themselves in it.

At Wilson a second language is not enough. With a quarter of our families having a parent(s) born outside of the US, language instruction is embraced and valued, so we also teach Latin.
If you think Latin is dead, you’ve never visited Wilson! Latin instruction, introduced in 3rd grade and taught formally in 4th-6th grades by a PhD-level classics instructor, is one of the liveliest parts of a Wilson education. Students enjoy exploring the cultural and geographical history associated with this ancient language and, along the way, improve their English skills, as well. Learning Latin is an exceptional resource for our students in improving vocabulary and spelling and further engages them in understanding our world.
You’ll come, you’ll see, you’ll conquer! Schedule a visit to Wilson today.
