Minneapolis Public Schools World Languages Mission
Prepare all students to be multilingual, culturally competent, respectful and responsible citizens of an interconnected, more peaceful world.
"Learning world languages prepares students for global understanding and living in a multicultural, multilingual world. Study of another language enhances learning through improved cognitive development, transferable reading skills, reinforcement of other subject areas, cultural literacy, sensitivity, and tolerance for diversity." - Joint National Committee for Languages
