Students in the 21st century must be well-educated and exposed to the multicultural aspects of the society in which they live and in which they will eventually work. The study of World Languages provides students with global awareness, tolerance and appreciation of other cultures, and allows them to recognize the worth of all people.
World Language education is for all students regardless of their learning styles, race/ethnic origin, socioeconomic status, home language, or future academic/career goals. The study of world language enhances native language skills, promotes an awareness of structure, vocabulary, and syntax of the English language, and expands the students' interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational skills. Furthermore, it develops an awareness and understanding of the culture in which the language is spoken as well as its values.
This September marks the start of our ESL Magnet School at Stony Brook Elementary School. Beginning in the 2016-17 school year, eligible elementary students will enroll at Stony Brook in order to maximize instructional time and streamline communication to better serve our English Language Learners. More about our program can be found here.
