All students at Hawk Meadow, from the Toddler level through Middle School, receive foreign language instruction in French.
Maria Montessori believed all students should consider themselves part of the world community, and foreign language and cultural studies are pivotal in supporting this concept. Foreign language study contributes to children’s awareness of the global community and to a greater understanding of other cultures.
At Hawk Meadow, foreign language is introduced in a hands-on approach that reflects the Montessori method. Our students receive formal foreign language instruction once weekly, and their learning is reinforced throughout the rest of the school week through songs and practice with materials and books that reflect vocabulary and concepts introduced during foreign language lessons.
