Glendale schools to offer Armenian language classes

As Glendale school officials continue to review a plan to offer the district’s popular dual-language immersion classes through the 12th grade, they announced this week which high schools would offer the foreign-language courses, the Glendale News-Press reports.

At the elementary level, the dual-immersion program has students spend at least half the instructional day speaking and learning in a language other than English.

At the high-school level, students would continue studying their chosen language with an intensive class every day.

According to the proposal, Hoover High School would offer German, French, Italian and Armenian classes and would offer a Spanish class for students currently enrolled at Franklin and Edison elementary schools.

Crescenta Valley High School would offer Korean classes for students who begin studying that language at Monte Vista Elementary.

Glendale High would offer Armenian, Spanish and Japanese classes.

Clark Magnet High School, specializing in science and technology, would not offer any of the advanced language classes, said Kelly King, assistant superintendent of Glendale Unified.

School board president Nayiri Nahabedian said she supports the proposal because it appears to provide balance to high schools and middle schools in respect to their enrollment sizes and language offerings.

When Glendale Unified Supt. Dick Sheehan told parents during a school board meeting on Tuesday that the district is aiming to expand the dual-immersion programs to advanced language classes at local high schools, the audience erupted in applause.

According to the proposal, Toll Middle School would offer classes in Armenian, Korean and Spanish, while Korean classes would be available at Rosemont Middle School.

RooseveltMiddle School would offer classes in Spanish, French, German and Italian.
