We Speak Your Language
The Awty International School takes pride in its language program. We are working to become a three-track immersion school in Spanish, English, and French. Our students will have the opportunity to study these three languages choosing primary, secondary, and even tertiary languages. To reflect the international diversity of our community, The Awty International School also offers a variety of other languages for students in the Middle and Upper Schools through the World Language Department including Arabic, Mandarin, German, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, and Russian.* Courses are available at different levels; students test to determine their levels.
*Additional fees may apply for these language classes. Please contact the Language Department for more information on the language policy.
It is no secret that the ability to communicate in more than one language is a critical 21st century skill. At Awty, we have recognized the importance and value of this for over 25 years. Bilingualism provides not only social and cognitive benefits but will better position students for the global lives they will surely lead.
Plurilingual and Pluricultural Learning
With over 50 nationalities represented by our students, parents, and faculty, Awty provides a unique learning environment where students are exposed on a daily basis to the richness of the world in which we live. They learn to respect and celebrate the differences that shape our community, while at the same time developing a sense of the commonalities that unite us. By learning about and understanding different cultures, students build empathy, the ability to collaborate, and to think creatively. These are critical skills for success in the current and future workplace.
