World language in grades 7 8
World Language in Grades 7-8

  • All 6th graders entering Oceanside Middle School next year are scheduled to remain in Spanish in grades 7 and 8, unless you inform us otherwise.

  • Students who continue with Spanish in middle school are on the path to completing their 3 credit sequence for an Advanced Regents Diploma in grade 9, a full year earlier than their peers.

  • Once at the high school, students of Spanish can either continue on to more advanced level Spanish courses, and/or begin to study a second or even third world language in grades 10-12.

  • Students who continue in Spanish have three different ways to gain college credit BEFORE graduating high school, through College Spanish in conjunction with Long Island University, through AP Spanish Language and Culture, or AP Spanish Literature and Culture.
