Sign Up for the World Language Program Today!
The World Language Program at Irving School is an introduction to different languages and cultures. In these classes, students will learn basic communication vocabulary. The relaxed class environment will help students overcome their apprehension to speak a foreign language. Language skills will grow over years of instruction.
World Languages are sponsored by the PTO, endorsed by the School Board, and encouraged by the staff and principal of Irving School. WLP is completely independent, funded solely by tuition paid by families of participating children.
WLP last ran for 12 weeks from January 13, 2020 through April 17, 2020. The fee for WLP was $130 for one child, $240 for 2 children or 2 languages. Scholarships are available.
