Students showing off work in Spanish class

The TEMS World Language department teaches Spanish to our 7th and 8th grade students as a full time, academic subject on team.  We cover the scope and sequence of a high school Spanish 1 course over two years.  Students learn to read, write, listen for understanding, and speak the Spanish language.  In addition, students are taught the practices, products, and perspectives of Hispanic culture to enhance their cultural understanding of our world.

All students take the Meriden high school Spanish 1 exam at the end of 8th grade.  Those that do well are able to begin high school taking Spanish 2.
