World Languages at Gates Chili
Gates Chili Central School District proudly offers French, Italian, Latin and Spanish to all students. The program prepares students to be successful in an increasingly interconnected world by becoming proficient in a second language and developing an understanding and appreciation of other cultures. Research shows that students who study a second language experience higher achievement in other academic areas, as well as on college entry exams such as the SAT and ACT. Students will acquire skills and knowledge that will hopefully instill a love of languages, as well as open many doors of opportunity for them in the future.
Many Gates Chili graduates have benefited from Gates Chili's strong language program. Students have the opportunity to earn college credit for Latin through Syracuse University, or for French, Italian and Spanish through Monroe Community College. High school world language students also have the opportunity to travel abroad to France, Italy and Spain.
