At the Fort Vancouver High School Center for International Studies awaits the next step for students in the Spanish/English Dual Language program. Here students will take rigorous classes, taught in Spanish, that are designed to hone their language skills and prepare them for college, careers and life. They’ll also deepen their understanding of literature, culture and history while sharpening their critical-thinking and communication skills. Opportunities for learning-based travel, community involvement, certification and professional interpretation experiences further enrich students’ knowledge. Meanwhile, Fort’s Center for International Studies—in which all students participate at this tradition-rich, culturally diverse school—develops students’ global competence by teaching them to investigate the world, recognize different perspectives, communicate ideas and take action to benefit the world around them.
