• Bienvenue! Bienvenidos! Salve! Willkommen!


    The World Language Department is pleased to offer a comprehensive and varied sequence of language learning to the students of the Gettysburg Area School District. From Middle School through High School, students have the opportunity to expand their horizons with the study of World Languages.


    In the Middle School, students have the opportunity to begin to study French, German, or Spanish in the 8th grade. The earlier commencement of language studies increases students’ proficiency and provides for a more rigorous and thorough examination of the language, literature and cultures throughout the students' educational career. 


    In High School, students may choose to study French, German, Latin or Spanish. We offer 5 years for the study of French, German, and Spanish, and 4 years of the study of Latin. Additional offerings include Spanish I and II for native speakers.


    If you have any questions, please contact the department head, Tarja Wilson at twilson@gasd-pa.org
