    Middle School students are eligible to earn high school Level 1 course credit in all middle school language courses.  The high school Level 1 curriculum is divided over the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade courses.  These are a sequence of courses in which each year builds upon the knowledge and skills learned in the previous grade.  Therefore students begin their language study in 6th grade, continue in 7th and 8th grades, and are then eligible to earn credit on their transcript.  In order to earn Level 1 credit, a student must earn at least a "C" as the final grade in the 8th grade course.  If a student is successful in this sequence of courses and earns the Level 1 course credit, it will go on his/her high school transcript.  A student is then able to enroll in Level 2 as a 9th grader, allowing students the opportunity to continue into upper level language courses sooner than beginning in 9th grade.  The Level 1 credit earned in middle school does qualify as a credit required for college entrance. This information explains the middle school World Languages program and eligibility for high school credit, and lists the languages available at each middle school.
