Intentional opportunities abound to shape our students as global citizens. Explore our international, domestic, and on-campus global learning opportunities below!

World Languages

Communicate as citizens of the world.

We teach four valuable languages at MICDS: Mandarin ChineseFrenchLatin, and Spanish. Each language contains cultural, linguistic, and global qualities that will help MICDS graduates be better equipped with 21st-century skills necessary to appreciate, work, and interact with people all over the world. The World Languages Department deems every language offered to be relevant, meaningful, and potentially useful throughout one’s lifetime.

Students at MICDS take Spanish from Junior Kindergarten through sixth grade. When entering the seventh grade, they select which language they wish to study in Middle and Upper School.  MICDS World Languages teachers have created short videos about each language we offer at MICDS as a Passport to culture, communication, and community in the languages we offer.  Have a look and learn more about World Languages at MICDS:
