World Languages

Welcome to World Languages! Lassiter High School World Languages (LHS WL) Department offers language studies in Spanish, French, German, and American Sign Language. In our program, our goal is to prepare students to be competitive when applying for college and entering the workforce. Students need to be language proficient and culturally competent in today’s global economy.
