Welcome to World Languages!

  • ConnectThe World Language Program of the Iowa City Community School District begins in grade eight at all three junior high schools and continues through Level V/AP at the high schools.

    World Language courses are offered as electives for junior high and high school students. The 8th-grade year is equivalent to the Level I course offered at the high schools. Students who complete this program are eligible to enroll in a Level II course in grade nine and may continue through Level V/AP in grade twelve.

    Students in AP level world language courses have opportunities to receive college credit by taking the AP Language and Culture Exam for Frech and Spanish. There are also opportunities for travel abroad to France and Spain that are facilitated through participation in the World Language Program.
