The French elective is offered to students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. French alternates with PE every other day and is one (1) semester in 6th grade and the full year in 7th and 8th grades. To be accepted in the regular 7th grade elective class, students should have had French in 6th grade. Students who participate in the French elective in 7th and 8th grade may receive one World Language credit in high school if they receive a passing grade both years. Further, Accelerated Bilingual class is offered to students who qualify based on academic ability. Those students need not have taken French in 6th grade. The Accelerated Bilingual course consists of a full year combination ELA and French with French I taught in the 7th grade and French II taught in 8th grade. It allows these students to participate in other elective offerings at CCS, including band, drama/speech, and art. It also provides more elective options in high school as their World Language requirements for graduation have been fulfilled.
