Welcome to World Languages! The Lassiter High School World Languages program offers language studies in Spanish, French, German and American Sign Language.  In our program, the 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.  At LHS, students have many opportunities to learn and experience the language in academics, extracurricular activities and travel:
