The Global Studies and Spanish Language focus will place an emphasis on and appreciation for different world cultures. Students of all ages will be readied to meet the challenges of an increasingly global world by exploring Spanish (conversation, reading, and the written language) and the cultures, traditions, and celebrations of Spanish-speaking countries. Students will have a solid foundation by the end of 8th grade and be well prepared for Spanish in high school.
In addition and to prepare Lippman students to enter a world characterized by rapid change, global challenges and cross-cultural interactions, additional themes will be introduced, examined and integrated into the core curriculum throughout the year.
Our teachers are committed to helping our students acquire the essential knowledge, critical-thinking skills, global awareness/citizenship, cultural understanding, and first-hand experiences needed to live, compete, and engage in our changing global community.
