    World Language Criteria:
             There are limited sections of French 1 and Spanish 1 offered to 8th graders. This course is for high school credit. Although an elective, it is considered an advanced academic course and has a considerable workload. It is not necessary for students to start taking a World Language at Dempsey; students may choose to wait to take a World Language at Hayes. In order for students to be considered for their first choice, they must meet all of the following criteria: 
    • 3.2 cumulative GPA by the end of term 3
    • B or higher in Language Arts each term of 7th grade 
    • Accelerated scores on standardized testing
    • Submit application, including required essay, by the deadline of February 23, 2024.
    Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have throughout the scheduling process.
